A YOUNG presenter from Dorset County Hospital’s Ridgeway Radio impressed the judges at a national competition.

Dom Cornfield received a bronze award in the best newcomer category after making it through to the final of the National Hospital Radio Awards.

The judges described 15-year-old Dom’s entry for the competition as ‘engaging and entertaining’.

They added: “This was a very polished performance and a great listen from someone just starting out in hospital radio.”

The Dorchester-based radio station’s Kingfisher Club also achieved a top ten finish in the Best Programme with Multiple Presenters category. Ridgeway Radio chairman Andy Worth said: “Congratulations to everyone for getting into the top ten in two categories “Dom's bronze award is a credit to him.

“These achievements are important for the future of hospital radio, and potentially for the careers of young broadcasters.

“Everyone should be proud of themselves and their colleagues.”

Kingisher Club co-ordinator Amanda Yates added: “These guys are a fantastic team.

“Up to ten of them work together brilliantly to make real radio for their listeners – they are the broadcasters of the future.”
