Surf Radio takes gold at national awards
20 July 2021
Surf Radio, Falmouth and Penryn’s award-winning student radio station, has taken the Gold Award for ‘Most Improved Station’ at the 2021 Amplify Awards, sponsored by Global and organised by the Student Radio Association.
It’s been a successful twelve months for station manager Tom Jackson, who had previously been shortlisted in the Best Newcomer category at the Student Radio Awards in October. This time around the station has managed to go one better by claiming the Gold Award, much to the delight of Tom.
As Tom said, “This is a dream come true for us. In September the radio station was in a tricky position with only a small team keeping it on the air; this amazing win is all down to the unbelievalbe commitment and work of everyone on the committee and most of all the engagement from our members, without whom Surf Radio would be nothing.
“We’ve punched above our weight and achieved something incredible under some of the most difficult circumstances and I couldn’t be prouder!”
Broadcasting 24/7 online, Surf Radio has been providing the soundtrack to student life in Cornwall since 2019, keeping everyone on campus up to date with the latest news and events that matter to students as well as helping everyone stay connected through this difficult year.
