Attention all students! Applications for the ‘Radio DJ(s) of the Year’ award at The National Student Media Awards are now open.

This award will be given to the student(s) who present the best music show broadcast on student radio. The show may also include chat and / or interview but some element of music is essential. Must be produced expressly for broadcast on student radio.

Previous winners of this award include Graham O’Toole and Rebecca Shekleton

Graham currently works as a presenter for Spin 1038’s ‘Fully Charged’ with Nathan O’Reilly. ‘Fully Charged’ won Radio Moment of the Year Award at the IMROs for interviewing Matt Damon on their talk show, when he stayed in Dalkey during Ireland’s first lockdown in March 2020. Graham has also made a few TV appearances on Virgin Media’s ‘Elaine Show’. He also produces and is the host of his own podcast ‘The Split Season’ which has hit No.1 on the iTunes podcast chart. The podcast follows five inter-county players embarking on a season like no other, as they work and train during a pandemic. 

Rebecca currently works as a breakfast radio presenter for ‘98fm’s Big Breakfast with Rebecca and Brendan’. She started her career at 98fm in 2016 as head of social media and digital content with previous experience as a station voice for FRQ FM and a radio presenter for Spin 1038.   

We’re so excited to see some your submissions and best of luck at The National Student Media Awards 2021!
