We’re immensely proud that several of our Academy students have gone on to become radio award winners!

The Erewash Sound team were celebrating success in both 2017 and 2018 at the Community Radio Awards (CRAs).

All three presenters who picked up awards had their first experiences of radio at the Erewash Sound Academy.
