Nations & Regions Awards 2014 - Winners announced!

The Winners of the Nations & Regions Awards 2014 have been revealed! You can see the full list and the Judges' citations right here.

Jon Kirby, Smooth Radio Programme Controller for Communicorp UK and Chairman of the 2014 Nations and Regions Awards Judging Panel said: “It was a great honour and privilege to judge such a broad range of fantastic stations. The overall standard was incredibly high this year within every branch, and all of the stations who didn’t win should be very proud of their entries.

What leapt out of the entries universally was the passion, dedication and ambition that runs through all of the programming elements and this is what makes the Nations & Regions Awards so very special."

Huge congratulations to all this year's winners, and warm thanks to our Judges for all their hard work!

In this week’s RadioTalk, we’ve got another brilliant dispatch from the week in radio history, courtesy of David Lloyd’s Radio Moments!

This week, engineer Hugh Bell recalls the launch of Manchester’s 2ZY; the first female newsreader on national radio prompts 10,000 letters of complaint; Kenny Everett’s final show on Radio 2; and ‘Lillibullero’ launched as the World Service’s unmistakable ident. Happy listening!
