Here are the citations for the awards from the local judges:

Bronze – University Radio York
The station is well-targeted, very entertaining – and with a well-defined sound and a personality that suits its audience. Programming and production ideas show real innovation and the station appears to have ambition that puts it far beyond the stereotype for student radio.

Silver – BCB
Compelling content with a depth of first-class programming that’s reflective of the area served. It’s a station that tackles issues head-on and puts politicians on the spot without ever being aggressive. The station is inclusive, collaborative and deeply rooted in its community, giving local people a chance to be heard.

Gold – BBC Radio Sheffield
Some superb radio on show here. The station is proud and passionate about its area with a strong personality and a great sense of fun. It’s evident that presenters and producers are right at the heart of life in the patch – they clearly know the audience and create programming that’s both engaging and entertaining for them. It’s also a station that cares deeply about its audience and wants to involve them. It’s not afraid to hold people to account – and has creativity and personality by the bucket-load. A shining example of what local radio should be.
