Radio Cymru is Celtic Station of the Year

Welsh language station BBC Radio Cymru has carried off the prestigious ‘Radio Station of the Year’ award at the international Celtic Film and Television Festival. The station recently recorded its highest share of radio listening in Wales since 1999 and it is by far the most popular radio station among Welsh speakers with one in three listening each week.
Glynne Davies, Editor, Radio Cymru, said: “This prize is a tribute to the hard work of those who work on Radio Cymru’s programmes, who work together to create such entertaining, accessible and popular programmes. We’re also moving with the times, with “C2″ – our evening service for young people – now being podcasted. We all feel very proud to receive this award.”
The Celtic Film and Television Festival is a three-day annual international event that recognises quality, originality and achievement on screen and in broadcasting.
