South East Radio won two prestigious national awards at the annual PPI Radio Awards last night while Managing Director Eamonn Buttle received a lifetime honour.
At a gala ball and presentation held in Kilkenny, Alan Corcoran received the Silver Award for Speech Broadcaster of the Year for his mutli award winning current affairs programme South East Radio’s Morning Mix.
Alan McGuire was also presented with a Silver Award, along with his partners, Don Conroy and the late Chris Wilson, for Going With the Flow in the Specialist Speech Programme category. That was a programme about following a small Wexford stream from it’s source to entering the River Slaney.
It was a triple celebration for South East Radio as Managing Director Eamonn Buttle – along with Today FM’s Ian Dempsey, RTE’s Dave Fanning and broadcaster Trevor Campbell – were inducted into the PPI Radio Awards Hall of Fame for services to the Irish radio industry.
