    The Radio Awards 2021 finalists

    The Radio Awards honours outstanding achievements across Campus, Community, Public Broadcast, and Commercial radio, setting benchmarks for all stations and professionals to strive towards. Finalists for the general categories have been announced.
    The Radio Awards 2021 finalists

    Taryn Westoby, head of Arena Events - which hosts The Radio Awards - believes that despite the challenges of the ongoing lockdown, the “quality of entries received has been remarkable considering the circumstances of Covid-19 and remote working. We congratulate the radio industry on their hard work and perseverance in delivering valuable content to their listeners and ensuring that radio remains one of South Africa’s foremost media choices.”

    The Radio Awards entries were adjudicated by a panel of 40 judges and reviewed by BDO South Africa, auditors of The Radio Awards. Entries for this year’s awards were required to be broadcast on FM or AM, (and in the online radio category) between 1 January 2020 and 31 December 2020.
