Radio presenter honoured by ‘Oscar’
A NAILSEA broadcaster has won a ‘Hospital Radio Oscar’ for his voluntary work.
Andrew Read, who makes up part of the Sunshine Hospital Radio team in Weston General Hospital said he was honoured to have received the award.
The station scooped its first gold award in the best speech package category at the ceremony held in Northampton.
The winning 30-minute programme called Famous Five Reunited, got the cast who adapted Enid Blyton’s books for television in the 1970s back together for the first time in 30 years.
Andrew said: “A lot of work went into it and its just gratifying when you are honoured by peers.
