Eagle Radio's Peter Gordon joins Guildford's Roll of Honour!

Published at 4:10pm 3rd October 2018. (Updated at 11:18am 4th October 2018)

Eagle Radio's very own Peter Gordon has been recognised on Guildford's Roll of Honour.

The accolade was created by the University of Surrey and Guildford Borough Council in 2011 to celebrate exceptional individuals in the town. 

It aims to recognise those who have made a substantial impact to the economic wealth, social wellbeing or artistic culture of Guildford and the surrounding area. 

PG, who in 1996 founded Eagle Radio – then known as 96.4 The Eagle – was honoured at the historic Guildhall last night (October 2).

The Eagle Radio Breakfast Show host was born in Guildford, and has worked in local radio for almost 30 years.

Mr Gordon has now joined Professor Sir Martin Sweeting, Peter Molyneux OBE, Professor Michael Bailey, Dato Dr Kim Tan, Perdita Hunt OBE and Professor Alf Adams on the Guildford Roll of Honour.

Professor Max Lu, President and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Surrey, said:

“The University and the Borough form a dynamic hub of internationally respected entrepreneurship and innovation. This award recognises our many outstanding citizens and showcases Guildford’s unique personality and enterprising spirit. “I am delighted that Peter Gordon is the newest inductee.”

Peter Gordon said:

“As a Guildfordian, it is a true honour to now be part of the town’s Roll of Honour – not least because of the esteemed company I now keep. The bonus is that I appear to be getting recognised for things that I’ve absolutely loved doing – in fact, I appear to have received an award for enjoying myself! Hopefully others may feel it’s all been worthwhile too. Thanks to the University and the Council for the recognition.”

Congratulations PG!
