RNOH radio station wins top radio award

Radio Brockley wins top radio award

Radio Brockley has won the most prestigious award in hospital radio by winning Gold for “Station Of The Year” at the annual Hospital Broadcasting Association (HBA) awards.

It was one of several top awards for London’s longest-running hospital radio station, which later this year celebrates 50 years on the air. The station also won a bronze award for Best Station Promotion and a silver for Best Speech Package.

One of the station’s longest-serving members, Keith Reeve, won the prestigious John Whitney award for his outstanding contribution to hospital radio.

Keith said: “I’m absolutely stunned to win the John Whitney Award. Hospital Radio has taught me so much, I’ve met many wonderful people and it’s a wonderful hobby”.

Radio Brockley beat competition from over 200 HBA member hospital radio stations to win the top prize.

Programmer Alan Joyce said: “This is an incredible achievement by all the volunteers at Radio Brockley who have worked so hard alongside staff at the RNOH to bring a range of entertaining and informative programmes, including the traditional request shows. We’re very grateful to the hospital for all their support, and to have this recognition in our special 50th year is the icing on the cake”.

The station will be inviting back former members and special guests later in the year as they celebrate their golden milestone.
