Revd Tony Miles has scooped an international Christian DJ award. Mr Miles is a Methodist Minister, Media Chaplain, and Radio Presenter, picked up the ‘International Honouree’ award for his ‘Saturday Quiet Time’ programme on Premier Christian Radio.
The Spin Awards 2017 ceremony (www.thespinawards.com) in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, was founded with the intent of honouring those who spin the gospel message through Christian Gospel Radio. The appointed Executive Producer said, ‘We are so pleased to present this award to Tony with our deep appreciation for this outstanding work in Christian Gospel Radio’.
Premier Christian Radio also picked an award at the same ceremony for the International Radio Station of the Year. Dave Rose, Premier’s Station Director, said, ‘We are delighted that Tony Miles, who has been with us at Premier for over 20 years, has been recognised in this way. We hope this award encourages many others to join him for his weekly ‘Saturday Quiet Time’ on Premier Christian Radio from 6am to 8am.’
Mr Miles said, ‘This was a very unexpected start to 2018. It is humbling to receive the award and I am grateful to the Spin Awards, my Producer Chris Byland, and our production assistant, Daniel Sotunde, both of whom should really have been named on the award too! My thanks are also due to those who nominated and voted for our work.’
Mr Miles is also a regular contributor to BBC Radio 2’s ‘Pause for Thought’ on Vanessa Feltz’s early breakfast show. Tony is the Deputy Superintendent Minister at Methodist Central Hall Westminster, which supports and enables his engagement with the media.
