LGBTQ Radio Station Awarded ‘Innovation Award’

An LGBTQ radio station, broadcasting in the North East of England on FM, across Scotland on DAB, and across the world online and on the Pride World Media App, has been recognised at the Community Radio Awards.

Pride Radio, a station broadcasting on FM, DAB and online for the LGBTQ community, has been recognised by the Community Radio Awards.

The station was awarded the Gold Innovation Award, at a ceremony held in Barry, South Wales, at the weekend.

More than 50 projects were recognised in front of an audience of 150 volunteers and staff from a range of stations across the UK.

The event was hosted by last year’s Female and Male gold recipients Julie Donaldson and Mark Jarvis, and took place after the Community Radio Now & Next Conference which was held in the same place.

Martin Steers, awards chair, said: “In just four years, the Community Radio Awards have become a firm fixture in the calendar of stations up and down the country.

“Radio continues to play a strong community role, and it’s a privilege to showcase it.”

The station, which operates from the Pride Media Centre in Gateshead, is no stranger to success. Earlier this year, the station was Highly Commended in the Inclusive Arts & Media category of the LGBTQ North East Awards.
