Kyriakos Gold, SBS Greek radio journalist, has been awarded for Outstanding Community Service at the NSW Parliament.

The Outstanding Community Service Awards were presented by the Hon Marie Ficarra MLC, Parliamentary Secretary to the Premier, Councillor Vincent De Luca and past recipient of the prestigious award, Pete Everett.

The Parliament of NSW acknowledged and commended Mr Gold outstanding contribution since his teenage years to multiculturalism, youth, the community and the promotion of diversity and tolerance in Australia.

During the presentation Councillor De Luca referred to Mr Gold’s instrumental part in the delivery of ethnic television for many European communities in the ’90s and early 2000, his academic achievements and scholarships and over two decades of volunteer work for mainstream and community organisations in Australia. SBS Radio’s Greek Program and Eurovision also got a special mention, as Mr Gold is currently a key member of those teams.

Mr Gold thanked the NSW Parliament and congratulated other recipients in his speech.

“I grew up in Greece, Australia was a magical country in my father’s storytelling; two decades later after having moved here, I can tell you it is still magical. We live in a great country, with great people, we have good governments and that is what makes this award an even bigger honor,” he said.
