All of the team at Siren 107.3 – Lincoln’s first community radio station are very proud to have been awarded the coveted ‘East Midlands Station of the Year 2013’ award.
Rob Persani, Chair of the East Midlands branch of the Radio Academy and Breakfast Show presenter at Rutland Radio presented the award to Siren’s Managing Editor, Andrew David at a ceremony hosted at the radio station on 23rd January. We were delighted to welcome the Mayor and Mayoress of Lincoln, the City Sheriff and consort, and friends from other media organisations in Lincolnshire, including Lincs FM 102.2, BBC Radio Lincolnshire and The Lincolnite, together with representatives from business and charity groups in the City.
University of Lincoln Vice Chancellor, Professor Mary Stuart congratulated the team on the many achievements over the years since the station launched as a full-time community service in 2007.
Commenting on the success of Siren FM in the East Midlands, the Radio Academy judges said: “Siren FM is a really ambitious and creatively interesting station. They’re doing something different but in their own way and are firmly rooted in their community. A mix of local experiences and stories with global themes – relating the world to Lincolnshire and vice versa. This entry displayed a great range of voices and topics on air as well as a great mix of youth, heritage, diversity and local history”.
And we are looking to the future. As Lincoln’s first community radio station, we are here to tell the stories, past and present, of our wonderful city and its surrounding villages.
