107 Spark FM has been honoured at the I Love Student Radio Awards.

Sunderland University graduate Kyle Wilkinson won for Volunteer of the Year.
The entire station built up of volunteers also won the Community Spirit Award for the second year in a row.
Spark’s former drive time presenter Jordan North also won The Hits competition which means he will be on the station this Sunday across the UK.

Jordan explains what winning the string of shows means to him:
“I’m so excited! To come out top in the competition is amazing; to come outknowing that I’m going to be on a national radio station this very Sunday is unbelievable! From student radio to The Hits Radio in less than a week; I can’t wait!”
Jordan won Bauer Radio’s competition to find the next generation of radio talent and will present the Sunday show for a month.

In other success current drive presenter Calum Hider won a sound clash challenge against Radio 1’s Greg James.

Speaking about the awards, Lee Sevenoaks said:
“I would like to thank everyone from Spark who voted for me, it means loads”.
“I’m hugely proud that 107 Spark FM has been recognised in this way, it’s a testimony to the huge amount of work that’s been put in by our dedicated volunteers who run the station.
“It’s fantastic we’ve won the Community Spirit a second time and Kyle thoroughly deserves his award for his tireless efforts to organise events and get other radio stations to work together.
Kyle is heading for a great career in media after landing a job on national station Amazing Radio.”

The awards were part of the annual Student Radio Association conference which took place from Monday to Wednesday.
