The Mike Smith Award is an annual event at the CCR Christmas Party. The award is named after Mike Smith as a tribute to the legendary local born radio presenter who is sadly no longer with us. The award was the first of it’s kind this year at Chelmsford Community Radio awarding the winner acknowledgement for outstanding contribution to the station.
The nominees for this award were:
James Henry House
Scott & Greg
Winner: Carl Spaul
Carl Spaul was awarded the Mike Smith Award for work he does with Scott & Greg on In The Middle who are two presenters with Dyspraxia. The help he has given to the two boys has been amazing and has helped develop the show into one of the most popular shows on the station. Along with his work with Scott & Greg he also has his own show on a Sunday and is always willing to help out and offer advice to others at the station whether it’s a technical or personal problem. There is rarely an event at CCR that you won’t see him at as he is always happy to offer his time for the station.
