It’s been a busy time for UEA’s student radio station. From their spectacular re-branding in the summer to the release of a new jam-packed schedule, they’ve made it their mission to become one of the best student radio stations in the country.
The recently released schedule is Livewire’s most diverse to date. Not only are a variety of musical genres represented, but there’s a multitude of new factual shows and podcasts.
To top it all off, Livewire have recently been nominated for not one, but FOUR awards at the Student Radio Awards. The annual event celebrates the talent and diversity of content in student radio, helping to launch the next generation of talent into the radio industry.
Over the years student radio has launched the careers of UEA’s own Greg James, Annie Mac, Scott Mills and several other current industry professionals.
The nominations for Livewire this year include:
Best Female – Issy Panayis
Best Entertainment Show – Tom v Tom
Best Journalistic Programming – World Mental Health Day Podcast
Best Student Radio Chart Show
The event takes place on the 10th November at indig02 in London, supported by BBC Radio 1 and Global.
