Our radio station in Ireland, Midlands 103, has been nominated for two prizes at leading broadcast industry event the IMRO Radio Awards.
The Midlands Today Show with Will Faulkner has been shortlisted in the Current Affairs Programme Local / Regional category with the Open Door getting the nod for Magazine Programme of the year.
The finalist placings continue a run of success for Midlands 103, which serves communities across Laois, Offaly and Westmeath.
The latest list includes the eighth shortlisting in 10 years for Will Faulkner and The Midlands Today Show, which has led to one gold award, two silver and two bronze.
