Metro Radio - Station of the Year

Congratulations to everyone at Metro Radio for achieving the Sony Award as Station of the Year (1m+) on Monday night. It's very well desrved.

As someone who worked on the launch of Metro way back in 1974 it is particularly pleasing to see Metro being nationally recognised for its commitment to its local area and doing the right things to make a continuing impact on the north-east listeners today.  Sadly, with the introduction of nationl branding and programme formats, few of the other first-generation stations are allowed to maintain such a strong local identity and sense of connection with their own patch.

Hats off to Bauer for allowing Metro to be Metro. But of course this makes the recent TFM decision even more bewildering......
