Mix96 News team up for national award

The Mix96 News team have been nominated for a national award!

Announced this morning, we have been put forward as a nominee for Newsteam of the Year at the IRN Awards 2020 for our work in 2019.

The awards celebrate the work of newsrooms across the UK, from individual journalists to teams.

Our entry included some of our biggest stories from the past year, including:

News Editor Dan Gooding said:

"I am so proud of all that we do to serve our community every single day, bringing you breaking news and stories about the people who live here.

"No other radio station covers Aylesbury Vale like we do.

"Last year, we had 7.1m views across local news stories on our website, up 41% on 2018 and after last week's news of record listening figures, this nomination just shows how important local news is.

"Thank you for listening and reading and continuing to talk to us about the issues which matter to Buckinghamshire."

The award is for a station with an official audience survey area (TSA) of under 1.5 million.
