THE NEW COMMITTEE HAS BEEN ANNOUNCED AT THE NERVE AWARDS NIGHT
The ceremony was hosted by Station Manager, Dom Belcher, and Deputy, Jack Clarke, at Bournemouth’s Old Fire Station venue. Announcements on new roles from each head of sector, as well as awards were made by Sarah Tijou, Head of News, Rebecca Pates, Head of Online and Laura Geall, Head of Magazine.
Kassia Hope Wordley tells us about the exciting event (via mobile interview):
Jeremy Clarke was the man to collect the new station manager title, with Thomas De La Rosa receiving deputy position. The Nerve Radio team can now be reassured that they are in safe hands with this experienced pair.
Charlotte Callear and Chloe Desave took Nerve News’ top roles- the most anticipated of the night. Charlotte had previously won ‘News Reader of the Month’ earlier in the year, and taken on the popular show ‘SUBU Surgery’ during the station’s FM fortnight.
The roles for next year’s committee were all filled, and the high level of strong applications meant new positions were created too- making next year’s committee the largest Bournemouth University’s station will see.
As well as roles announced, awards were given to members across the board for their outstanding commitment to the station. These include ‘Best Male Presenter’ awarded to Liam Austen, judged by Station Manager, Dom Belcher, and ‘Best News Writer’ awarded to Sabrina Sahota, judged by Jake Simons, the UK Associate Editor (Global) of Daily Mail Online Editorial.
The evening also included an on-stage interview with Sean Montague and Emily Sandford about SRA’s and how life changing student radio can be. Emily and Sean are previous BU students and Nerve members who won gold at the Student Radio Awards for Best Entertainment Programme.
The award was presented by BBC Radio 4’s Steve Punt, one part of comedy double act Punt and Dennis. You can watch their interview after their win here. Emily also gained a bronze award in the Best Female Presenter category, supported by BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 1Xtra.
Nerve Radio’s current Station Manager Dom Belcher said:
“This is a fantastic achievement for Nerve and certainly a sign of things to come. We have really put ourselves out there in terms of having the very best talent student radio has to offer and I am very proud of what we have achieved.”
The whole of Nerve Media congratulates the nominees and winners for their great achievement and wishes them all the best.
