National Hospital Radio Awards 2018

Didn’t we do well?

Durham Hospitals Radio have won two awards at the National Hospital Radio Awards 2018 which was held at the De Vere Beaumont Estate in Windsor.

John Middleton won bronze for the Best Special Event with his broadcast from Durham Regatta. The judges said this entry showed real high quality programming and great local radio – the host is well informed and an excellent interviewer.

Eileen Thompson won silver for Best Speech Package with her Cheviot Challenge broadcast. The judges loved this piece – they thought it was a good countryside walk with lovely sound effects and a genuine speech package of interest, painting pictures along the way – as only radio can.
