Connor wins Gold at HBA Awards 2022

All of the team at BHR Wales would like to express a huge congratulations to Connor Morgans on his success at the Hospital Broadcasting Association Awards 2022 picking up Gold in the Best Male Presenter category. This is the first award that BHR has ever won at the HBA Awards and we all agree that it could not have gone to a more deserving winner.

Connor recently became Programming Co-ordinator at BHR becoming a Trustee after 7 years of volunteering at the station.

Connor Morgans said:

“I am incredibly honoured to be a part of the board of trustees at Bridgend’s Hospital Radio (BHR). I’ve loved my time presenting at the station but very much look ahead to being involved in decisions and shaping BHR to be the best it can be. I hope I’m not the last and that other young people consider being a trustee for a charity that matters to them.”

The judges said:

“Connor’s enthusiasm is believable and compelling. He’s inclusive of both patients and staff whilst sharing relatable stories which makes you want to be his friend.”

BHR would like to extend a huge congratulations to all the winners and runners-up at this years HBA Awards, it is great to see so many hard working individuals awarded for the work that they put in on a voluntary basis to ensure Hospital Radio lives on.
