The Community Media Champions recognises those outstanding individuals who have made a special and significant contribution to community media. Dom says:
"I have been really inspired by Ian’s work in driving a truly engaging community station at East Coast FM. He has led the way for community broadcasting in the UK by highlighting the value of the Princess Royal Award for Training to the wider broadcasting industry.
He richly deserves our recognition as a 2022 Community Media Champion and I could not be more pleased to present the award to him."
