It Shouldn't Happen to a Radio Presenter 47: Election Night Programme Wins International Radio Award
21 Jun 2016 at 21:00
So, I found out this morning that Shelagh Fogarty and I have won the Gold Award at the New York Radio Festival Awards for Best Coverage of an Ongoing News Story=, for our General Election night programme on LBC. Should you wish to listen to the entire 7 hours again, you can do so here
It was a terrific privilege to co-present the show and there were quite a few memorable moments. Given that we don’t have the resources of the BBC I think we put on a brilliant show, and that’s down to our producers Matt Harris, Jagruti Dave and Rachel Humphreys and everyone else involved.
And on Thursday night from 10pm we’ll be doing it all over again for the EU Referendum. Hope you’ll join us.
Here’s the award entry – a twenty minute highlights package from election night.
