Anandi Shah and Hansa Varsani impress radio industry judges

Last night the Hospital Broadcasting Association (HBA) live streamed the 2020 National Hospital Radio Awards.

The awards are held every year as part of the HBA Conference, which this year were due to be in Bolton, Greater Manchester. Due to Coronavirus the gala dinner and award ceremony were cancelled.

So member radio stations could still be recognised for the work they do, the organisers decided instead to stream the awards via YouTube and Facebook on Easter Monday.

Anandi Shah, from Saturday Brunch, won Bronze for Best Newcomer. The judges said Anandi was “a really promising presenter, with much to offer. She displays her intelligence engagingly in her content and questioning”.

Hansa Varsani, from the Mixed Masala Show came away with Bronze for Female Presenter of the Year. One of the judges said of Hansa, “Wow! What an incredibly positive and fun entry this was…Hansa has also mastered that one-to-one skill”
