Liberty Radio Awards Finalists announced

Posted by radio On March - 20 - 2018

The adjudication process for the 2018 Liberty Radio Awards has been concluded. The adjudication panel has sorted through the entries, allocated scores that have been further verified by Mazars, a Chartered Accounting firm, and the finalists for the various categories have been decided.

“The total audio of the entries, if played continuously, would amount to more than one week of non-stop listening,” says Lance Rothschild, CEO of the Liberty Radio Awards. “We are really grateful to the panel of adjudicators who gave their time and expertise freely towards this process of determining who is making the best radio in South Africa. I am confident that the results emanating from the adjudication process will show that the best of the entries rose to the top in each of the categories. It is my fervent hope that these awards continue to motivate and inspire the radio industry to continue raising the bar, setting ever higher standards that will keep listeners fulfilled through compelling programming. This in turn will secure the future of radio as a vital source of entertainment, education and information for years to come.”

 

 

Amongst the very positive feedback from members of the panel, was the following:

“Thanks for the opportunity. Judging Liberty Radio awards is a great honour, knowing the fact that these awards are well-recognised throughout the country.”

“We wish to congratulate all the category finalists.” says Rothschild. “Achieving finalist status earmarks you amongst the best-of-the-best. We’re grateful to all those who submitted entries into this year’s program and we encourage those who didn’t make it to finalist status to strive to raise the standard of radio to ensure a bright future for the industry.”

 

Killy Bacela, Divisional Director of Group Brand & Marketing at Liberty, says: “We congratulate the finalists and look forward to celebrating those who strive to make compelling radio; those who keep knowledge at close reach and those who continue to elevate the standards on what real, credible news and stories should be. Through our commitment to the Liberty Radio Awards, we hope to meaningfully contribute to the progression of the industry by applauding and rewarding those who continue to raise the bar through storytelling and entertainment.”

Congratulations to all the finalists, the winners will be announced and celebrated at the Sandton Convention Centre on Saturday 14th April.
