In other big news, we have some upcoming things for you all!
In the past, we used to run Staff of the Week, which was a way to give recognition to the people within the UpBeat Staff Team who really, truly deserve it!
The recognition was given through their outstanding performance throughout the week within their department, region or globally.
Global Manager, Global Head DJ, Global News Editor, Global Moderator, EU Radio DJ, NA Radio DJ, OC Radio DJ & News Reporter were the categories.
Previously, by winning Staff of the Week, you received Staff of the Week Tag on the Forums, along with Forum VIP free for a week.
This will be changing in the future, and we will update you all closer to when this is officiated!
