RUGBY League will be represented for the second time in three years at the prestigious Radio Academy Awards in London next month, as 102.4 Wish FM’s rugby league show Gerr’um On Side has been nominated for Best Sports Programme.
The show is one of five up for the award and will go head to head with the biggest names in sports broadcasting for the top honour on May 12 at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel.
Each weekend throughout 2013 the show previewed games involving local teams, with presenters Chris Milow (St Helens), Louisa King (Warrington Wolves), Mark Wilson (Wigan Warriors) and Roy Basnett (Widnes Vikings) fighting their club’s corner.
In addition, the show went ‘on tour’ visiting RedVee Café last summer when Louie McCarthy-Scarsbrook and Josh Jones starred on the show.
Producer and stadium announcer on Saints match-nights Chris Milow said: “We loved doing the show and it was great that so many of our top Super League players were willing to give up their time to be part of it. We’ve got some tough competition for the award, but getting a nomination is an incredible honour.”
