The BBC Asian Network has been nominated for three awards at the prestigious Sony Radio Academy awards, it was revealed today.
Also up for nomination was Islamophonic, the Guardian newspaper’s monthly podcast on Muslim issues, produced by its religious affairs correspondent Riazat Butt.
The show initially started as a weekly project but has since been scaled down to a monthly podcast as Riazat took on more responsibilities at the Guardian.
BBC Asian Network has been nominated in the Digital Station of the Year category. Its Asian Nation project has been nominated for a Community Award and its documentary on ‘Britain’s Missing Girls’ is up for a New Feature Award.
The Sony Radio Academy awards will take place on May 12 in central London.
