Radio Sweden Wins Award

Radio Sweden was awarded the special prize at the annual Radio Academy gala on Wednesday night.

Bengt Feldreich presented the prize, commending Swedish Radio’s foreign programme for still going strong, celebrating its 70th anniversary this year.

For Swedes it has always felt good to have their public service radio so close even when they themselves are so far away, he said.

The programme was praised by the Academy for its coverage of both wars and tsunamis.

The industry gala is arranged by The Radio Academy, an organisation working with all forms of radio; local, public and commercial.
