Staff at Peterborough’s local community radio station PCRFM (103.2) will find out this month if they’ve won a prestigious award following a trio of nominations in the annual National Community Radio Awards.

More than 430 entries were received from radio stations across the UK. These nominations have been whittled down and Peterborough’s PCRFM has made the shortlist in three categories including Male Presenter of the Year for their breakfast show host Kev Lawrence, Community Show of the Year for The Kev Lawrence Breakfast Show and also the Live Event of the Year for the innovative Drive in Firework Spectacular (produced by Wayne Fitzgerald, presenter Kev Lawrence) at the East of England Arena during the pandemic.

Wayne Fitzgerald, a founding director at PCRFM, said: “We are delighted to have been recognised alongside many other stations who are doing great work across the UK community radio sector. We were particularly proud of the innovative way we found to interact with our listeners at a live event through an outside broadcast held during the pandemic. The whole team at PCRFM should be pleased with this industry recognition and know that all here also appreciate their hard work.”

Martin Steers, awards chair, said: “As face-to-face events resumes, it’s great to get together and celebrate the hard work of the last 18 months. Many stations have further cemented their essential community role in this time, and it is great to reflect.”

“It is clear to see from this, that passionate presenters, volunteers, and staff are really there for their audiences.”

“We wish PCRfm good luck and can’t wait to host the ceremony in Coventry.”

Winners will be revealed in a ceremony later this month being held at the Transport Museum in Coventry, in partnership with the City of Culture.
