2014 MTN Radio Awards finalists announced

19 Mar 2014 12:27
After an intensive adjudication process encompassing at least 2000 hours of listening and scoring, the finalists in the 2014 MTN Radio Awards have been determined.
2014 MTN Radio Awards finalists announced
The announcement of the finalists was made on YouTube earlier today, further demonstrating MTN's leading position in delivering a bold, new digital world to its customers.

"The overall quality of the entries was excellent and competition at the top of the categories was extremely close," says Lance Rothschild, CEO of the MTN Radio Awards. "One thing that has been noticed and even commented on by the various adjudicators is the standard of radio in South Africa, which is excellent and most certainly on a par with some of the best radio elsewhere in the world. I certainly believe that the MTN Radio Awards has contributed to an increased focus on excellence and has raised the overall standard of the industry."
