Feltz wins Breakfast Radio award

The broadcaster and journalist told the JC she was schleping "nachus to the max"

    Vanessa Feltz is schleping "nachus to the max" this morning, after winning gold at the Gillard Awards last night.

    Ms Feltz won Best Breakfast Show at the BBC Local Radio Awards event for her show on BBC Radio London, beating Liz Green from BBC Radio Leeds and Ben Prater from BBC Wiltshire. All were shortlisted for the award in September.

    Ms Feltz joined BBC Radio London in 2001, presenting a mid-afternoon phone-in show, and has stayed with the station while her show moved into various timeslots. She started hosting her award-winning breakfast show in 2016, following her early morning show on BBC Radio 2.

    The broadcaster and journalist tweeted "we're so grateful to our listeners for giving us such great content... if it wasn't for them I'd just be sat reading multiplication tables."

    At the awards on Wednesday night at Coventry Cathedral, Tony Hall, the Director General of the BBC, said: "50 years ago Frank Gillard had a vision. He wanted to enrich local life and, as he put it, he wanted local radio 'to belong to the people' – listeners, he hoped, would 'come to regard their local station as our station… not as the BBC station in our town.' At the time, his ideas were bold, radical, challenging even. They were unpopular in some quarters too – but they’ve been a huge success."
