Colin Slater MBE
Colin was awarded an MBE in 2001 for his services to the community and in recognition of his charity work and long service as a local magistrate. Not originally from Notts, he moved in 1959 to join the Nottingham Evening News as a journalist. When The Evening News merged with The Evening Post in 1963, Colin continued to report on Notts, playing a key role in saving the club from bankruptcy in 1965. He then joined the original cast of BBC Radio Nottingham broadcasters to provide reports on Notts and the County cricket team.
