The first thing that attracted me to come to Sunderland was definitely the facilities. They’re outstanding and have been for a number of years. They’re ahead of most commercial radio stations in the industry and I know that the BBC and other groups come in to use our facilities all the time. They really are quite standout.
I don’t think I’d have achieved anything without having Spark FM. I feel like Spark made the experience tenfold better. Having a student radio station on your doorstep where you can go in to volunteer and make your own shows is just the best experience. Without it, I wouldn’t have been able to win my Gold in New York."
