Enormously proud of my time at URY where I helped run the speech team for 2 years and produced comedies, dramas and the weekly review show Yorworld.
The station provided the most incredible platform and confidence booster and hopefully people enjoyed the content that I worked on for the station.
The programmes I helped work on scooped 5 SRAs in all from 7 nominations ranging from Best Interview, Best Speech Programme and the Kevin Greening Award for Creativity and a further nomination for the BBC Audio Drama Awards in 2014.
These all stand as a testament to what can be achieved when a student radio station reaches out to the diverse talents at university and embraces them from musicians, actors, writers and comedians.
Best Speech Programming (Bronze) 2011 : 'The More Beautiful Game' by James Bugg.
Kevin Greening Award for Creativity 2011 : 'The Prince of Humberside' by Tess Humphrey.
