Everyone's A Winner

Well done to all the nominees for the ‘Arqiva Commercial Radio Awards 2009’ which were announced tonight. Here comes a 'full disclosure' moment... I am a judge for this year’s awards and part of the judging committee that pulled together the shortlist.

It's great to be reminded that UK commercial radio has some fantastic talent both in front of the mic and running things behind the scenes in stations of all shapes, sizes and formats. Some of the entries were absolutely brilliant. Being honest.... some were very average too... and of course 1 or 2 were really pretty bad! But that’s the same in any industry really.

Commercial radio at its best is creative, inventive, challenging, original, inspired, moving, hilarious, simple, complex, educated, but mainly... delightfully entertaining.

I look forward to the ceremony in London on June 5th. And my lips shall remain firmly sealed until then!!
