The John Whitney Award 2013 Results
The results of the 2013 The John Whitney Award award have been announced. Congratulations to Radio Tyneside Network's Dave Nicholson for scooping the top prize this year.
Dave Nicholson"Dave joined Radio Tyneside back in 1973, making this his 40th year with the station. He initially joined as a presenter, but within 18 months was asked to take over running the station, and the rest - as they say - is history. He's organised all aspects of the station from the day-to-day running to training new members in all areas. Over the years, events he's masterminded have generated around £500,000! He's worked hard, most recently, with the NHS Trust to negotiate a move to a new building, which the Trust converted at no cost to Radio Tyneside. Those are just a handful of the many achievements by Dave - a worthy winner!"
