Sony Radio Award Winner

Hello, sorry for the lack of updates recently, but I have some amazing news!

I am a 2009 Sony Radio Award Winner! I was a key part in the BBC Radio Manchester team that last night won a Gold Award in the 'Breaking News' category.
If you don't know, Sony Radio Awards are the equivalent of the radio Oscars.

Our entry featured 'The Rangers Riot' - It features the night Scottish Rangers football fans came to Manchester for the UEFA Cup Final against Zenit St. Petersburg in May 2008. Unfortunately one of the big TV screens in the fan zones broke, and combined with a day of drinking in the sun, it led to violence and riots.
