New Shock Radio studios are open
In case you haven’t heard, Shock Radio is back. They have returned to broadcasting after relocating to their new studios in University House.
The move from Adelphi to University House was made possible due to £107,00 investment from both the University of Salford, and the University of Salford Students’ Union. The investment brings greater opportunity to students who want to get involved in radio and broadcasting.
On the 5th of November Shock Radio won two awards at the Student Radio Awards. These were for ‘Best Live Event or Outside Broadcast’, and ‘Best Entertainment Programming’. This was yet more success for Shock Radio, who have won numerous awards during previous years.
Marina Hristova, University of Salford Students' Union President says, “We are so pleased to have Shock back up and running after their short break this semester while work was completed. It’s so nice to have student presence near the sabbatical team offices and integrated as part of the Union, upstairs in University House.
In 2014 Shock Radio set the world record for the longest radio show. The team managed to complete a mammoth 85 hour long broadcast on Monday the 14th of April 2014. The record was previously held by Radio legend Chris Moyles, who set the record in 2011. Shock's success led to them raising over £2500 for The Christie.
Previous Shock Radio alumni have gone onto a variety of careers in fields as varied as communications, digital media, events and journalism. We wish Shock Radio even more success in the future, and look forward to tuning into this new wave of programming.
