MTN Radio Awards

Posted by radio On March - 17 - 2012

 

The excitement is palpable as there is officially less than a month to go until MTN hosts the annual Radio Awards gala banquet.

Contrary to popular belief, radio is still the dominant mass-medium in Africa, with the widest geographical reach and the highest audiences compared with television (TV), newspapers and other information and communication technologies (ICTs). According to Western Cape Primedia Broadcasting manager, Karl Gostner,” [radio] has the ability to have instant interaction and reaction on any topic or issue. [It] has a feedback channel that allows for the quick flow of information”.

With that said, the MTN Radio Awards are to honour this great medium as well as to “promote and recognise excellence in radio, with the objective of ensuring that radio remains one of South Africa’s foremost media choices”. The judging panel was announced by MTN Radio Awards Chairman, Rich Mkhondo and MTN Radio Awards CEO, Lance Rothschild. The panel will select the category winners using a set guideline to eliminate any possibilities of bias. Jeremy Maggs (Founder MTN Radio Awards), David Mashabela (Radio Presenter and Consultant), and Koos Radebe (Former Station Manager of Metro FM) form part of the list of confirmed judges.

The Gala Banquet will be held at the Sandton Convention Centre on 14th April. To enhance the festivities, the event will be followed by an after party. Join Radiobiz, as we will be counting down the days to the big day by follow up articles on anticipated category winners, accompanied by industry opinions.
