Four IMRO nominations for Shannonside/Northern Sound

Shannonside Northern Sound is celebrating today having picked up four nominations in this year’s IMRO radio awards.

Shannonside’s newsroom has been recognised with two nominations in the News Programme – Local/Region section, for coverage of Denis Naughten’s resignation as Environment Minister in an entry titled “Optics, than fibre optics.”

The second news nomination was received for coverage of the government’s failed attempt to locate a centre for refugees on the Leitrim/Roscommon border called “Rooskey under fire”.

Northern Sounds’s breakfast presenter Sean McCaffrey has been nominated as Sports Broadcaster of the Year – Local/Regional and the station also received a nomination for Drama for the production “The Vampire of Killaspleen”.

The awards will be given out at a gala ceremony in Kilkenny at the beginning of October.
