Children's radio station Fun Kids has been shortlisted as Radio Station of the Year at two awards ceremonies.

The station - which targets the tween audience alongside programmes for younger children - broadcasts on DAB Digital Radio in London, as well as online and through mobile apps.

At the Sony Radio Academy Awards, it has been nominated for Station of the Year (1m plus), up against BBC Radio Newcastle and Metro Radio.

Meanwhile, Fun Kids lines up alongside Absolute and LBC97.3 in the Station of the Year (2m plus) category at the Arqiva Commercial Radio Awards.

This year has already seen the station secure new commercial and programming partnerships with Disney, Camp Bestival, British Gas, Swapit, Bin Weevils, DC Thompson and Random House.

"It's brilliant for Fun Kids to be recognised alongside some of the biggest and most successful stations in the country," said station manager, Matt Deegan. "To have Best Station nominations in the big two radio awards ceremonies is a massive achievement for the Fun Kids team."

In the Arqiva Awards, Fun Kids was also nominated in the Social Action category for its Fun Kids Education work.
