The annual awards programme which draws entries from all sectors of the radio industry is regarded as the “Oscars” of South African radio and the stars of the radio industry were out in full force to celebrate.

The Liberty Radio Awards is a credible, well-judged programme that promotes excellence in radio with a view to ensuring that radio remains one of the foremost media choices in South Africa.

Excellence in radio

“Our aim is to promote excellence in radio,” says Lance Rothschild, CEO of the Liberty Radio Awards. “Excellent performance and content rewards listeners for the time that they spend listening to a station or program and compels them to remain tuned-in for longer. It also reinforces the relationship between a station or program and the listener, which ultimately contributes to the sustainability of radio.”

“The standard of this year’s entries was exceptionally high and adjudication scoring was incredibly close, but I am confident that the results reflect the best work within the industry.”

Killy Bacela, divisional executive of group brand and marketing at Liberty says:

Liberty applauds all the nominees and winners from this evening's awards, all of whom have demonstrated consistent excellence and the highest standards in the creation and production of captivating radio programmes. The winners play a part in the enrichment of people’s lives. This is the same purpose we at Liberty strive for, through our continued demonstration of making financial freedom possible.
The winners are as follows:
