Didn’t she do well?!
Our very own Eileen Thompson was shortlisted for the Female Presenter of the Year in the National Hospital Radio Awards in 2016! Out of 220 entries, Eileen came an amazing 5th.
The National Hospital Radio Awards is an annual celebration of the excellent standards found in hospital radio stations across the country. The awards are hosted by the Hospital Broadcasting Association, a national charity that supports and promotes Hospital Broadcasting in the UK.
The British Astronaut Tim Peake sent a special message at the start of the awards, direct from the International Space Station. You can read it here
