5th international award win for Siren FM

Written by on 20th April 2013

The RTDNA has announced Siren FM has won another International Region Edward R Murrow Award – this time for Radio Documentary News.

The prize is in recognition of the ‘BBC in Crisis’ programme broadcast live last November. The BBC Director-General had resigned over the weekend, and this special was put together and broadcast on the Monday. The round table discussion featured Professors Brian Winston and Jane Chapman, Ex Lincs Editor/Journalism lecture Jon Grubb and ex BBC Today Editor Kevin Marsh.

You can hear the show in full on the Siren FM specials page of our website.

The programme was presented by Station Manager Andrew David, driven by Jonathan Cresswell and produced by the University of Lincoln School of Journalism’s Deborah Wilson.

The prize is the fifth international award the station has won in the last few years, the others being for features and news output.

Also nominated in this year’s awards was a feature by Siren FM reporter Sam Pidoux about a chaplaincy for ex-pats in Spain.

*The RTDNA is the US-based Radio Television Digital News Association – a membership organization of radio, television and online news directors, producers, executives and educators.
