Much-loved BBC Radio Ulster presenter Gerry Anderson will be posthumously inducted into the PPI (Phonographic Performance Ireland) Radio Awards Hall of Fame tomorrow.

The ceremony, which is due to take place at the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland offices in Dublin, comes after a distinguished career spanning three decades and his death in 2014.

Gerry’s family, who will be accepting the award on his behalf, said: “Radio was the true love of Gerry’s life so it’s wonderfully fitting that he has been recognised in this way.

“We’re immensely proud of his work on air and it says so much about his legacy that he is now being inducted into the PPI Hall of Fame.”

Gerry would have had a ball attending the induction ceremony, they added.
