Erewash Sound nominated for a Corporate Vision Media Innovator Award

After a number of successes over the last few years, Erewash Sound has the chance of more glory after it was selected as a nominee in the Media Innovator Awards 2021 with the radio station selected by Corporate Vision Magazine.

The Media Innovator Awards 2021 will honour businesses and enterprises regarded as the driving force behind the region’s continued growth and success.

The nomination for the radio station comes after a three month process for organisations to submit nominations.  Officials at the Cotmanhay-based radio station have to wait until October to find out whether there is a chance to add more accolades to those already collected.

Ian Perry is the Press and Publicity spokesperson for Erewash Sound.  Speaking on the news of this latest chance of yet another award, he said: "Having already had as many as nine successes for our presenters at the annual Community Radio Awards, and receiving the 2020 award for Local Radio Station of the Year in the 'Innovation and Excellence Awards', we are absolutely delighted to be nominated as a possible recipient of a Media Innovator Award.  

A great deal of hard work is put in by our volunteer team - particularly under very challenging circumstances during the pandemic -  to provide a genuinely local 24-hour radio station, on our website, social media and on-line broadcast services in addition to our two FM frequencies, but our achievements would not be possible without the support of local businesses, and of course, our many listeners and we thank every single one of them, past, present and future.  Our fingers are crossed for good news in October."

Holly Morris is the awards co-ordinator for Corporate Vision Magazine.  She described media as a highly captivating, and transformative industry that plays a significant role in global communication and added: "It is an immense source of knowledge and conveys important influences on shaping society and corporate market trends. As the Covid-19 pandemic has continued, it has accelerated many trends within this sector and has ultimately created upcoming changes as digital has become the way forward.

"We are proud to announce the Media Innovator Awards 2021 which aims to acknowledge those prestigious businesses, and individuals who have excelled within the industry.  The awards programme actively welcomes all businesses, enterprises and professionals, from print media, to broadcasting and social media, amongst numerous other areas, to get involved with this valuable opportunity.

2021 forecasts a rise in direct-to-customer streaming services for the media industry, as well as major technology platforms expanding their presence in gaming, leading to new mergers and investments. The Media Innovator Awards 2021 are important in recognising those who show their hard work by keeping up with these rapid changes.

"Once votes for our Media Innovator Awards are received, our research team will carefully judge the nominees based on merit (not the number of votes) and various other criteria through information that is available both online and in the public domain, including any materials supplied by the nominees. The successful organisations are then presented with their award and complementary marketing materials that will be invaluable to their PR portfolio in publicising their win. We also give all nominees the additional option to be featured in our annual winners’ magazine with a worldwide circulation of 155,000 readers, alongside the choice of several other personalised marketing items.

We wish Erewash Sound the very best of luck!"
