Corinium Radio nominated for national award for digital skills work

Corinium Radio, the local community radio station based in the Cotswolds, has been nominated for a national award for its work in promoting digital skills.

The community group is one of the nominees in 2021’s Digital Leaders 100 (DL100) accolades, which recognise people and organisations that “are demonstrating a pioneering and sustainable approach to digital transformation in the UK”.

Digital Leaders brings together senior leaders who are driving technical transformation in their sector to support social and economic inclusion. Corinium Radio was nominated for the award for “encouraging digital skills and giving individuals the opportunity to develop and learn”.

Commenting on the organisation’s achievement, chair Carole Boydell said: “Decisions about the award are made around November, but being nominated is an honour in itself.

“I’d like to offer a tremendous thank-you to all our volunteers for the amazing effort they have put into making sure the station continued to produce shows (in whatever way possible) during lockdown.”

This is not Corinium Radio’s first taste of national acclaim — the organisation was one of five stations shortlisted for the digital station of the year accolade in the Community Radio Awards 2019.

These national awards celebrated both community radio and the hard work and time that volunteers put into their stations, programmes and communities.
