There are several student radio stations at UK universities which are also community radio stations. The Student Radio Awards are open to members of the SRA (Student Radio Association). The glitzy awards ceremony last month at London's O2 Indigo is a highlight for radio-making students everywhere.
Congratulations to Radio LaB who took home the silver for 'BEST CHART SHOW PROGRAMMING' 2022. Terry Lee Senior Tutor in Radio & Audio at the University of Bedfordshire says 'A silver award is fantastic recognition for the hard work our student volunteers put in last year - a great achievement! Everyone who attended the ceremony had a fantastic time too'
