Colchester Radio Station Finalists in National Radio Awards

Sometimes here at Actual Radio we are so involved with promoting Colchester and all that’s great in our town that we are very bad at telling you what we’re getting up to.

Back in the Summer we found out that Actual Radio had been nominated for ‘Best Online Radio Station’ the National Radio Awards (the ARIAS). In September we were watching with baited breath as it was announced we had been shortlisted in our category.


On October 19th station manager Pete Chapman (right) and Presenters Phil Terry (left) and Nick Moon (center) traveled to the First Direct arena in Leeds to mingle with the stars. Unfortunately we did not win our category, but Pete tells the rest of us they had a fantastic time.

    Was a great night. Yes, sadly we didn’t win, but just to be shortlisted in our category was amazing and mingling with the stars of National and Commercial radio. Should I tell them about the post awards kebab!???
