After winning the award a stunned Ian Mac said:
“This is the proudest day in the station’s history, I am over the moon. Thank you to the Radio Academy for shining a light on Community Radio and indeed Vectis Radio.
“We, like all the other like minded community stations do incredible work in our community on a shoestring budget. To enable us to continue this work, we need your support. Please support us when and if you can, because while awards are always fantastic, they don’t pay the bills.”
