talkRADIO’s Badass Woman’s Hour wins award
The Badass Woman’s Hour show and podcast from talkRADIO has won the Diversity in Media Awards’ Radio Programme of the Year.
Launched in January, the show is hosted by Harriet Minter, Natalie Campbell and Emma Sexton. It saw off competition which included Woman’s Hour, LBC and Resonance FM.
The DIMAs celebrate media which goes out of its way to produce diverse and challenging content. The awards are voted for by the public with Badass Women’s Hour gathering the most votes in the Radio Programme of the Year.
Harriet Minter said: “We’re so delighted to have won and very grateful to everyone who voted for us. Just 4% of radio shows with more than one host feature groups of women, this simply isn’t good enough and we’re proud to be part of changing that.
“The programme aims to show the real conversations women have: from work to relationships to politics and money. We don’t believe in holding back and strongly believe in using our show to highlight the diversity of brilliant women in the UK today.”
