awards
Karis has won three IVCA Awards as well as ten HBA Awards.
After over eight years of broadcasting, Radio Tyneside’s Geordie Hour has
now won TEN National Hospital Radio Awards. 
The Fairly Truthful Guide to Geordie
This is a documentary based on Gary’s Hogg's book of the same name. A lot of research went into writing the book but just as much work went into editing it down and making it into a radio programme. In the 'Best Speech Package' category at the National Hospital Broadcasting Awards 2015, they won Gold!

The Judges said:
"This is simple radio, but beautifully done. Excellently told and good use of sound effects. Outstanding. Very impressive editing, soundscaping and humour. Loved the knowledge, and particularly liked the subversion of Casablanca. Brilliantly executed."

Dr Kinlay’s Facebook
This is a comedy drama written by Gary Hogg and Karis Jones and performed by them and a lot of the guests and contributors they had on their show during the year. 

Entered into the 'Best Speech Package' category at the National Hospital Broadcasting Awards 2016, they won Gold!

"The judges felt this raised a smile, indeed more than a smile, it made them laugh out loud. Comedy can be difficult – comedy in hospital even more so but this entry hit the spot. A very entertaining, well thought out production."
