Radio Harrow is proud to have been shortlisted for three awards at this year’s Hospital Broadcasting Association Awards 2017. We have received nominations for three categories: Best Station Promotion, Best Speech Package and Best Programme with Multiple Presenters.
Our shortlisted entries included the promotion of the Radio Harrow Panto ‘The Tweeting Beauty’, the special ‘Living with Diabetes’ show and the ‘Saturday Patients’ Hour’. Each nomination showcases the variety of broadcasting that Radio Harrow offers.
The special ‘Living with Diabetes‘ show contending for Best Speech Package aired as part of our ‘Best Weekend Ever‘ event in October. It featured presenters from the station who suffer from Type 1 diabetes alongside Liz Warren, a volunteer with Diabetes UK, candidly discussing what it’s like living with the illness.
The ‘Saturday Patients’ Hour‘ team submitted an entry for the Best Programme with Multiple Presenters, each week they showcase songs and stories from the patients at Northwick Park Hospital alongside features which promote health and wellbeing such as the ‘Saturday Cookbook’.
In stark contrast our entry for Best Promotion included our 2015 Christmas Radio Panto called ‘Tweeting Beauty‘ which was a light hearted and witty reflection of the playful pantomime. Entirely written and produced by our volunteers, the pantomime was created to provide light relief and entertainment for patients and the local community.
The station’s Programme Manager, Gary Walker said, “it is an honour to be nominated for these awards, they truly reflect the diversity of our programming. the nominations are an acknowledgement of the hard work of all our volunteers who work passionately to create entertaining and informative programming each day.”
The Hospital Broadcasting Association is the national charity that supports and promotes Hospital Broadcasting in the UK. Each year they showcase the work of hospital radio stations across the UK.
