Students take over BBC Radio 1
Students from Cambridge student radio station CUR1350 are claiming their prize of a show on Radio 1 this weekend as seven presenters host the early show on Bank Holiday Monday.
The special show is in recognition of CUR1350's Best Student Radio Station award at the SRA's (Student Radio Awards) in November 2007.
The presenters will make their way down to the UK's capital, to broadcast from the famous Yalding House studios on Great Portland Street with full BBC training prior to their show, which is being broadcast between 5 and 7am on Monday morning.
Michael Brooks, station manager between 2005 and 2007 is thrilled: "The level of quality is evident through the fact that the BBC is letting us loose on one of their biggest national radio stations BBC Radio 1, and we very much look forward to demonstrating to the rest of the UK what university students, staff and researchers from Cambridge University and Anglia Ruskin can listen to on CUR1350."
Martin Steers, the newly elected station manager said: "It's good to see both students from Anglia Ruskin and Cambridge University going to Radio 1. Both Universities have students wishing to pursue a career in the media, and we actively recruit, support and encourage these students at CUR1350."
CUR1350 won the Best Student Station award at a glitzy ceremony held in central London last November, fighting off more than 300 other entries to win Gold for the first time in that station's 29 year history.
