We here at talkRADIO are very proud this morning. 

Why are we proud? We picked up a major award at the IRN Awards, held in association with Sky News, on Thursday. 

The amazing work the team put into the US election special won the station the presitigious Best News Special or Feature gong.

Judges described it as a "fast-paced, informative and gripping" coverage of the event, which "captured the excitement and drama of the night."

Robyn Schonhofer, who presents news on talkSPORT and Virgin Radio, also picked up the Newsreader of the Year (Over 1m TSA) award, with the judges describing her as "natural, clear and very relatable," with impressive "variation in tone and style."

Go team!
