Wish FM nominated for prestigious award

Wigan's promotion to the Championship

102.4 Wish FM has today been shortlisted for a prestigious national radio award for our coverage of Wigan Athletic.

Our weekly show ‘Latics Live’ will go head to head with entries from four other radio stations, including national radio station TalkSport to win the IRN Best Sports Coverage Award.

Presenter Chris Milow said, “it’s been an amazing 12 months following Latics, from the cup win against City, to the promotion and the Party in the Park, to the change of ownership and it’s be great to be a part of it.”

IRN Editor and Chair of Judges, Dave Terris told us, “It's a big achievement being nominated for an IRN Award given the strength of the competition in commercial radio news. The Awards recognise the breadth of talent and the quality of journalism that exists in the network.”

We will find out if we have been successful at a ceremony in London on 7th March.
