We are delighted to announce that this year’s outgoing Chart Coordinator, Luke Franks has won a ‘Sony’!

The Sony Radio Academy Awards are often described as ‘The Oscars of UK Radio’. Luke, former Station Manager at Xpress Radio (Cardiff) has just hours ago, joined the elite group of people who can say “I’ve won a Sony”.

Luke was nominated for the Sony DAB Rising Star Award. The only category in the awards that is open to the public vote. It celebrates the new talent in the industry, something that clearly the SRA is very keen on as well! He was nominated for his shows on Fun Kids, where he presented “The Club” and “The Treehouse”. Fun Kids is a digital radio service aimed at children, and currently the Sony and Arqiva Digital Radio Station of the year!

We’d like to offer Luke our full congratulations, on the award, and we’re sure (SRA Exec edit: ‘we’re certain’) he’ll enjoy the night!
