The UK’s only green radio station Passion for the Planet has been shortlisted in the BT Radio Station of the Year Awards.
Independently owned Passion which broadcasts to London and parts of the south of England on DAB has been shortlisted alongside four other national radio stations: BBC 6 Music, BBC Asian, Planet Rock and Gaydar.
The awards celebrate innovation and excellence in radio. The initial shortlist is chosen by a panel of distinguished judges. The final winner is decided by combination of public vote and judges decision.
Passion’s listeners have been rallying round voting for the station and emailing the studio with congratulations.
