Breakfast Wins Prize For Interview

A Day in the Life Add comments

Well we don’t often blow our own trumpet on Radio Adelaide Breakfast – but the other day we won a prize recognising a very special interview. A few weeks ago Nick Lee joined us in the studio. Nick lost his wife Jodi at 41. A few years ago they were living in Thailand and Jodi was getting some tummy pains. A visit to the doctor led to a diagnosis of bowel cancer. Only a short time later she was taken by the disease leaving Nick to look after their two small kids. It was just heart wrenching stuff…

So put yourself in his shoes – if your partner died so young what would you do? Retreat into your shell and never come out? Or start a foundation to let people know just how easy it is to protect yourself from bowel cancer? Nick took the second option – and he’s raised money since by running the New York Marathon and the grueling Gobi March – a 250 km footrace across China’s Gobi desert. It was a warm and touching interview. And last weekend I flew to Sydney on behalf of the breakfast team to pick up a cheque for $1000 and a fantastic plaque. So there you go – Radio Adelaide breakfast is an International Award Winner. Even more reason to tune in every weekday at 6.30am on 101.5FM, or on the net here! Oh, btw, check out our award here, and listen to the original interview here.

    Thanks Rosemary – much appreciated! We’ll keep working hard to create even more award winning radio. The funny thing about this award is we didn’t even nominate for it – they came to us and said we’d won! We even beat some TV reports!
