The Army’s radio service, Garrison FM, is celebrating winning a major radio industry award.
Catterick’s Garrison FM has been named the Radio Academy’s Nations and Regions Station of the Year for Yorkshire.
The award comes after a very busy 12 months for Garrison FM which saw them report from Afghanistan twice, Kenya and Germany as well as interview several key politicians and senior Army officers, not to mention Jeremy Kyle.
The award was judged by a panel of industry veterans and experts who said Garrison FM truly excelled in its desire to serve its audience.
“The station is not only there to entertain and inform but it is also clearly seen by its listeners as a vital part of everyday life.
Garrison FM’s Managing Director, Mark Page, said: “This is a fantastic achievement not just for those based at Catterick but for everyone working on the Garrison FM network. The whole team played a significant part in this achievement.”
