ICR’s own 14 year old presenter wins at Community Radio Awards

A teenage radio presenter who began his career aged 10 has been the winner at the national Community Radio Awards.

Yanis Kerampran, 14, from Ipswich won the Under 25s Young Person of the Year Silver Award at the award ceremony held in Coventry earlier this week.

The award recognised the achievements Yanis had made producing content that engaged with his local community on his radio show ‘the Yanis Mix’ – played on Ipswich Community Radio.

Yanis had been shortlisted last year, but narrowly missed out. This year, however, he won big which he says is down to the support he received at Ipswich Community Radio.

He said: “I feel really grateful. It wouldn’t be possible if it wasn’t for the trust of my community radio station for letting me go on air every week at my age.
