Capital drive presenter Ben Sheppard has been named as the Radio Academy’s first North West Newcomer Of The Year.
Ben took over the Drivetime show on Capital North West and North Wales in May of this year after winning Best Newcomer in the 2013 Student Radio Awards.
He was nominated by his Managing Editor, Paul Holmes.
The award was presented on Tuesday night in Manchester City Centre at a packed event which also included the Christmas Quiz hosted by Stephanie Hirst. Teams from around the area competed in a number of rounds, including questions about what’s happened in radio in the last 12 months.
It’s the first in a new run of events for the North-West Branch Of The Radio Academy.
