Digital radio station, Core, has won the ntl New Media Award at the CRCA Awards which took place in London last week, presented by Chris Tarrant.

Core's Digital Content Manager, Nick Piggott was thrilled with the well-deserved award: "We are all completely over the moon that Core has been recognised as an innovative new media application. The GWR Digital Team is committed to bringing the radio experience into the digital age."

Core launched in November 1999 on the national digital multiplex Digital One and is a station dedicated to a combination of fast changing club sounds with what is fresh on the music scene.

Core's sound reflects the speed of change in the charts and is refreshed daily, and with its pioneering Core Control feature, is one of the stations leading the way for digital radio. Core Control enables a greater degree of listener interaction, as it puts the radio station in the hands of the listeners, as they surf Core's website, www.core.musicradio.com, to choose the music that they want to listen to 24 hours a day, completely free of charge!

Unique Interactive Ltd and Virgin Radio were also competing in this category.

The CRCA judges felt that Core/GWR Digital deserved to win because it was "dead simple and entirely relevant to what the radio station is about. Core Control provides the listener with the opportunity to make requests via the website Corefreshhits.com, WAP phones and text messages."
