Burn FM is the best place to grow confidence, meet amazing people and develop as a person. There is something for everyone in this society, whether you want to write, produce, present or create. This year we have achieved so much and improved our society beyond anyones expectations and despite limits which impeded us.
On Saturday 11th March at The Burn Awards 2017 our society came together from the past 20 years and celebrated the work of our members and how far we have come as a group. I want to give a massive congratulations to the winners of the awards as well as the nominees, all were very well-deserved.

You should all feel massively proud of your achievement, there was a lot of talent this year but you stood out and went the extra mile.
Following The Burn Awards it is now time to say goodbye to the committee of 2016-2017. Some of us have been part of Burn for our whole University experience and so will be very sad to leave. But there is so much more to come for this society and station, with a brand new committee which is full of committed, talented and enthusiastic people. With the new update appearing in the near future, Burn FM will be reaching all new heights!
It has been my honour to lead such a wonderful society and be a part of this amazing thing which is Burn FM, and it will always remain the best part of my University experience.
Thank you from myself, and the whole committee 2016-2017, and good luck to the committee next year!
