Maritime Radio wins gold at Radio Awards

The best of community support and broadcasting has been recognised at the 2020 Community Radio Awards.

Like most events this year, the night was available online for community radio volunteers and staff to view in their own homes.

Continuing the tradition, the event was hosted by last year’s Male gold recipient, Sam Day from Future Radio, with awards presented by a multitude of judges and sponsors.

Martin Steers, awards chair, told Radio Today: “This year has not been what we expected, but community radio has really stepped up to the plate and served its communities more than ever.

“The work we’ve seen this year is phenomenal, and we’re delighted to be able to help recognise this. We’re already planning next year’s awards, and hope to gather again in person once more!”

Maritime Radio won gold in the Community Show of the Year category for Trevor Blackman Now.

Director of programmes, Duncan Martin said: “It’s been another great year for all of us at Maritime Radio, albeit a challenging one.  To be recognised at the national awards in 2020 is extra special at a time like this.  I’m so thrilled that Trevor Blackman has brought gold back to Maritime Radio again this year.  This is a great achievement for Trevor and for Maritime Radio overall and we’re very grateful to all of our team on and off the microphone, for the effort they put into our award winning radio station.”
