Smoke Radio has done it again! We won three awards at the Student Radio Awards 2017!

Sofia Loporcaro won gold and silver in the Best Interview Category and The Thursday Breakfast Show with Gabriel Green and Joe Pilbrow picked up a silver for Best Entertainment Programming.

“It was such a great feeling” Gabriel said about his accomplishment. He added,“ we work hard to make the show, so for that to be recognised by industry experts felt brilliant. A massive thank you to Joe and Pulama for being brilliant and also to the previous committee for giving us such creative freedom.”

To Sofia, winning two awards meant the world to her: “To be recognized for that feels really amazing. It was also wonderful to get to properly thank everyone that has helped me get here.”

For her gold winning submission, she interviewed Alt-J, which was no walk in the park: “When I do music interviews, especially ones of this scale, I’ll spend days researching and planning for them, really getting to know my interviewees’ music and process,” explained Sofia.

Last years Station Manager, Callum Denning, was “over the moon” about Smoke getting three out of six awards we got nominated for. However, he is extremely proud of Sofia being recognised with silver and gold as it is “a testament to the growth she achieved through being a part of Smoke.”

We want to congratulate everyone who was nominated and thank you to the SRA for a fantastic evening of student radio achievement.
