Organisers behind the Community Radio Awards have teamed up with next month’s Local Radio Day.
Community stations already signed up in support of the day include Ujima 98fm and Gateway 97.8fm.
More than 40 community radio stations from around the UK entered the awards in 2016, with even more expected to put submissions forward this year.
Martin Steers, awards chair, said: “Community radio is a shining example of great local broadcasting, and we are proud to support Local Radio Day. We encourage stations in the sector to get involved and use it as another tool to shout about the excellent work they do in their local areas.”
Local Radio Day is a UKRD initiative and is taking place on 26th May 2017.
