Radio Ysbyty Gwynedd shortlisted for award

Local hospital radio station Radio Ysbyty Gwynedd has been shortlisted in the annual national Community Radio Awards.

The station has made the shortlist, which was whittled down from more than 430 entries from stations from every corner of the UK and has picked up a nomination in the Digital or RSL Station Of The Year 2021 category for their work in serving the patients of Ysbyty Gwynedd in Bangor and the wider community.

The winners will be revealed in a ceremony at the Coventry Transport Museum, in partnership with Coventry UK City of Culture next month.

Kevin Williams, Chairman said:

"We are delighted to have been recognised among a large number of other stations doing great work across the UK. To be shortlisted for the Digital or RSL Station of The Year 2021 for the second year in a row is an absolute honour. I'm so proud and myself and all of our volunteers are over the moon with the news. As a bilingual station, we're proud to be going to Coventry and flying the flag for Wales"

Martin Steers, awards chair, commented:

"As face to face events resumes, it's great to get together and celebrate the hard work of the last 18 months. Many stations have further cemented their essential community role in this time, and it is great to reflect. It is clear to see from this, that passionate presenters, volunteers, and staff aree really there for their audiences. We wish Radio Ysbyty Gwynedd good luck and can't wait to host the ceremony in Coventry next month"
