The Cat Radio has been nominated for a triple crown at this year’s I Love Student Radio Awards.
The student-led station that broadcasts from the University of Chester’s Warrington Campus has been shortlisted for ‘Most Improved Radio station’, ‘Team of the Year’ and ‘Outstanding Contribution to a Student Radio Station’.
The awards recognise those people and stations who go the extra mile, putting in time, effort and creativity behind the scenes and whose commitment to student radio is unprecedented.
The ‘Most Improved Radio station’ category recognises the station that has made the biggest improvement over the last year.
The Cat Radio’s Management Team has been nominated for ‘Team of the Year’, an award that recognises the outstanding efforts of a particular area of a radio station without which the station would be much worse off.
And final year student Cat Warren has been nominated in the ‘Outstanding Contribution to a Student Radio Station’ category. This is for an individual who has made the most difference to their student radio station and continually strives to go the extra mile for their station.
Cat, 21, from Flintshire said: “I am speechless! I can’t believe I have a nomination. We have a really strong team this year and I believe anyone in the team is worthy of this nomination.”
Radio Production programme leader Michelle Ponting said: “More than 100 people were entered into Outstanding Contribution category so I am really happy for Cat’s work to be recognised.
“The management team this year is made up of just six students and they have done some fantastic work. To also be nominated for most improved station is just wonderful.”
The winners will be announced at the National Student Radio Conference on April 2nd.
