Following the announcement of the finalists in the various categories of the 2018 Liberty Radio Awards, the finalists for the coveted Station of the Year title have now been selected and the final adjudication to determine the Station of the Year is now in progress. In addition, the inductees for the Bright Star and Hall of Fame have also been announced.

 

“The announcement of the category finalists has met with a fantastically positive response,” says Lance Rothschild, CEO of the Liberty Radio Awards. “The adjudication panel who select the winning stations of the year are going to have their work cut out for them, particularly considering the overall standard of the entries for this year’s awards. It will be very exciting to see who the panel determines as the station that continues to raise the bar in terms of compelling content quality. After all, the Station of the Year title gives the winning station- and all who work there- bragging rights for the next year.”

 

 

Killy Bacela, Divisional Director of Group Brand & Marketing at Liberty, says: “The Station of the Year is indeed the Grand Prix of the Liberty Radio Awards and we look forward to revealing the winning station and celebrating with the industry on 14 April. Acknowledging excellence and recognising the commitment it takes to not only be the best, but to create a legacy for the future is one of the core values of Liberty. We congratulate the finalists, who can be secure in the knowledge that they are being recognised for their dedication and their passion for storytelling and entertainment.”
