Last weekend, the city’s community radio station, Radio Cardiff won the prestigious MMG regional award for Best Radio Station in Wales and the South West.
This year marks 10 years of broadcasting for Radio Cardiff and following a shake-up of our schedule in January, the station has gone on to win the ultimate recognition; being named Best Station in Wales and the South West.
The award was accepted by our Strategic Director, Jeremy Rees at the event in Bristol over the weekend.
Donna Zammit, Head of Radio said:
“We are thrilled to have received this accolade from our audience. The volunteers that help make Radio Cardiff what it is work tirelessly to give the station its unique voice and distinct identity.
