Vectis Radio has won bronze at the prestigious National Community Radio Awards. The trophy recognises the 4Ps Training Project which was one of five nominees in the Community Development Project of the Year category. The station was shortlisted from more than 360 entries from over 75 stations and is a first for the Newport based station which began broadcasting on FM in November last year.
Station Manager, Ian Mac said, “This is a fantastic achievement for Vectis Radio. To get any sort of award for what we do, having only been eligible for less than a year, is a testament to the hard work that has been put in by our team. It was always my dream to make a positive change in people’s lives using radio, and not only have we done that, but we have been recognised nationally for it.”
