Erewash Sound could win another accolade, having been nominated for a Media Innovator Award.
They will find out in October if they have been successful.
The Media Innovator Awards 2021 will honour businesses and enterprises regarded as the driving force behind the region’s continued growth and success.
Ian Perry, spokesperson for the Cotmanhay-based community radio station said: “We are absolutely delighted to be put forward 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.”
As well as broadasting on two FM frequencies and online, Erewash Sound also has a website and a social media presence.
Mr Perry, who presents the popular Lazy Sunday show, paid tribute to the local businesses supporting them and their many loyal listeners.
