Our students were delighted when radio presenter Stephanie Hirst dropped in to announce they had won a national broadcasting award.
The College’s student-led radio station, The Vibe, claimed the Secondary School Radio Station of the Year at the Young Audio Awards, which recognises young people under 18 with a talent for producing audio content.
“It was amazing to find out – we were all speechless – and it was brilliant for Stephanie to come back to College and tell us the news.”
Video footage of Stephanie’s announcement to the students was shown during the Young Audio Awards ceremony, which was shown live on YouTube.
Thomas said: “We didn’t expect to win because we were shortlisted alongside some bigger stations. It was amazing to find out – we were all speechless – and it was brilliant for Stephanie to come back to College and tell us the news.
“I would like to thank Lee Barber and the other Media tutors for supporting us and ensuring we have a fantastic studio to use. I’d also like to say thank you to Stephanie, the award sponsors Kiss FM and the Young Audio Awards team.”
