The station was also nominated on numerous occasions for the Radio Academy’s Station of the Year award for the South, and won in both 2011 and 2013.

It’s such a privilege to be celebrating this huge milestone and, as well as thanking our listeners, I’d also like to thank our loyal advertisers who continue to help the station thrive and grow and of course the incredible staff who make it all happen.”

Programme Director, Paul Topping added: “A huge thank you to all our listeners who’ve been a big part of our continued success.
