2012 Sony Radio Awards
14th May 2012
Tim Lewis, Adam Newstead, my MD & I spent the evening at the Grosvenor House Hotel, Park Lane, London for the 2012 Sony Radio Awards in which we were nominated for UK Radio Station of the year!
It took less than 2 minutes to spot the 1st familiar face, that of the evening's host Chris Evans, to say the event was star studded would be an understatement, he doesn’t come anywhere close to the amazing radio professionals and celebrities we were yet to met in the ball room.

Before we could enter the awards our tickets needed to be checked and for the VIP people there was the obligatory walk down the 'red carpet' which I took upon my self to do after a dare from Adam Newstead! It was great; I was “papped” by all of the nation’s newspapers, Sky News and MTV. However upon reaching the microphones groans of “Who on earth is he?" could be heard so I briskly walked back to my KL.FM team.
Our table was situated about 10 tables back from the stage giving us the impression that we had not won, but how wrong were we?! UK Radio Station of the Year was the 2nd award of the evening, when the time came Chris Evans introduced Alexandra Burke to reveal the winner...
WOW! We were all in complete shock, amazing and in front of legends such as Ronnie Wood, Sir Tom Jones, Tony Blackburn, Pat Sharp and hundreds more.
I've spent 14 years at KL.FM and this without a doubt was my proudest moment and one I'll never forget. I've always known KL.FM 96.7 is the best radio station and now it seems the whole of the UK does too!
