At the Sony Radio Academy Awards it’s been nominated for Station of the Year (1m plus), up against BBC Radio Newcastle and Metro Radio and in the Arqiva Commercial Radio Awards it’s been nominated in Station of the Year (2m plus), up against Absolute Radio and LBC97.3.
Fun Kids is a radio station that targets the tween audience alongside programmes for younger children. It broadcasts on DAB Digital Radio in London as well as online at funkidslive.com and through mobile apps.
It’s been a busy year for the station with new commercial and programming partnerships with Disney, Camp Bestival, British Gas, Swapit, Bin Weevils, DC Thompson and Random House.
Station Manager Matt Deegan: “It’s brilliant for Fun Kids to be recognised alongside some of the biggest and most successful stations in the country. To have Best Station nominations in the big two radio awards ceremonies is a massive achievement for the Fun Kids team.”
In the Arqiva Awards the station was also nominated in the Social Action category for its Fun Kids Education work.
