The RFL has congratulated BBC Radio Manchester after its Rugby League coverage won a prestigious gold award at the Gillard BBC Local Radio awards last night.
The station’s matchday coverage and Thursday evening ‘Rugby League Extra’ show beat off stiff competition from the 40 regional BBC stations to take top prize in the sport category.
“On behalf of everyone at the RFL I would like to congratulate presenters Jack Dearden and Trevor Hunt and the rest of the BBC Manchester sports department for their outstanding achievement,” said the RFL’s Communications Manager John Ledger.
“The importance of local radio is reflected in the high quality of BBC Radio Manchester’s Rugby League programming and this award is richly deserved.”
