Rotherham United v Wigan Athletic Tickets
Our media partner, local radio station 102.4 Wish FM, have today been shortlisted for a prestigious national radio award for their coverage of Wigan Athletic.

The weekly show ‘Latics Live’ will go head-to-head with entries from four other radio stations, including national radio station TalkSport to win the IRN Best Sports Coverage Award.

Presenter Chris Milow said, “It’s been an amazing 12 months following Latics, from the cup win against Man City, to the promotion and the Party in the Park, to the change of ownership and it’s been great to be a part of it.”

IRN Editor and Chair of Judges, Dave Terris said: “It's a big achievement being nominated for an IRN Award given the strength of the competition in commercial radio news. The Awards recognise the breadth of talent and the quality of journalism that exists in the network.”

Wish FM will find out if they have been successful at a ceremony in London on Thursday 7th March.
