Herne Bay’s Local community radio station Radio Cabin 94.6 FM has been shortlisted in the annual national Community Radio Awards.

The station has made the shortlist, which was whittled down from more than 360 entries from 77 stations from every corner of the UK.

The station has been shortlisted in the Speech and Journalism category for their broadcast on the Opening of the Herne Centre.
Peter Jell, station manager, said: “We are delighted to have been recognised among a large number of other stations doing great work across the UK”.

Head of News and Sport at Radio Cabin 94.6 FM, Peter Guise added “It is very important for a local community radio station to bring important local community events to the forefront of its broadcasting. Being part of the community it serves and helping listeners be a part of it is the best way to promote the community. This was a fun piece to do for us, needing a variety of radio skills from a number of people, and underlines how far the station has come”.

Martin Steers, awards chair, said: "Now in their third year, the entries are getting better and better, and we’re really able to show off the diverse broadcasting that the countries stations undertake for the benefit of their communities. We wish Radio Cabin 94.6 FM good luck and can’t wait to host the ceremony in Sheffield in September”
