We’re incredibly pleased to announce that last Thursday night, our very own James Hanson won Broadcast Presenter Of The Year at the 2014 O2 Media Awards for Yorkshire and Humber.
James has been a presenter on Leeds Student Radio for three years, presenting a variety of shows including the well-loved James Hanson Live as well as our Head of Speech in his second year and Programme Controller over the past year. On Thursday he came ahead of competition from ITV Calendar and BBC Radio Sheffield to win the award in a ceremony held at the Royal Armories in Leeds. The award was presented by ITN presenter Nina Hossain and James was described at the best radio talent to come out of Leeds since Chris Moyles! He has just finished his degree in Politics at the University of Leeds and we wish him the best of luck with his future career.
Congratulations also to Andy Seddon of LSTV who won the Emerging Talent Award and to our friends at Leeds Student Newpaper who won Weekly Free Newspaper of the Year and were runners up for Editorial Team of the Year. You can find the full list of winners here.
