SABC Scoops ‘Em Up!

Posted by radio On April - 18 - 2012

 

The South African Broadcasting Corporation’s (SABC) can proudly raise its pennon in celebration as the broadcasters’ radio stations have done extremely well.  The broadcaster managed to rake in over 20 accolades at the MTN Radio Awards, which were held in Sandton on Saturday the 14th of April.

Excellence must be applauded and celebrated. The SABC radio stations proved to be the crème de la crème of an arguably competitive radio industry by emerging as top performers in the previous financial year, which was between April 2011 and March 2012. The top radio stations were namely; Ukhozi FM, 5FM and SAfm as these three stations scooped up various awards. Of the three top contenders, Ukhozi FM proved its tenacity by pocketing 9 well deserved awards including the coveted Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) Station of the Year award.

5FM managed to bag the Commercial Station of the Year award, as well as walking away with 4 awards. Also on par, SAfm claimed five 5 awards and sealed that it is the station of choice when it comes to credible information by winning the News and Information Leader award.

Metro FM, Thobela FM, RSG, and Lesedi FM each walked away with an award, and Phalaphala, Lotus FM, and Chanel Africa each pocketed 2 awards. SABC Acting Head of Radio, Lesley Ntloko is appreciative that there is a platform which acknowledges excellence in broadcasting, because indeed, hard work pays off. He is quoted saying: “these awards are most valued by the SABC, especially the Station of the Year awards, which are voted for by the listeners. It becomes meaningful to note that the SABC still by far, heeds the call to inform, educate and entertain the South African audience. These awards are a testament to the hard work and dedication of all the SABC Radio stations.
