Liberty Radio Awards Finalists announced

Posted by radio On March - 20 - 2018 ADD COMMENTS

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.

Here is a comprehensive list of the finalists in order of category, and sorted in alphabetical order by station name:

Tracey Lange leaves her Heart behind

Posted by radio On March - 15 - 2018 ADD COMMENTS

The 9-12 show on Heart FM will become a lot less boisterous and bubbly on Friday this week, as host Tracey Lange presents her last show on the station. Tracey, who joined the station three years ago, will be hanging up her headphones and heading straight to set. Over the last few years the radio personality has become more in demand in the TV world and this will be a strong focus for her brand over the next while.

Tracey is currently the co-host of the M-Net’s live reality show Dancing with The Stars SA and presents a lifestyle show on KykNET – BRAVO! which she has been doing for the past few years. She also has a few other projects in the pipeline.

 

Tracey says she will miss the listeners the most. “Being a part of the Heart FM family has been everything I’d hoped it would be and allowed me to do what I’d set out to do when I decided to pursue a career in broadcasting – giving people the platform to share their stories. Fortunately this won’t end, with the start of another new TV show that will be announced in the next few weeks. I will miss the listeners endlessly and all the fun I had with them on air daily. I will cherish my three years with the listeners forever.”

 

Heart FM’s Head of Programming Denver Apollus says Tracey’s absence will be felt. “Tracey is an industry professional and her contribution to the mid-morning space has seen the show grow in numbers. We will miss her bubbly personality and energy she brings to the show.”

Managing Director for the station Renee Redelinghuys echoes Apollus’ sentiments. “Tracey has an infectious energy to which people are naturally drawn. Her laughter and banter with the boys in the morning, especially the high pithed “Hi” which has become synonymous before her show will be missed. Even the flou-jokes which she introduced. Tracey is a true professional in every sense of the word and there is no doubt that her star will only shine brighter from here. We thank Tracey for her contribution to the station and the Heart FM family as a whole.”

Death Row Chronicles, on BET

Posted by radio On February - 27 - 2018 ADD COMMENTS

Watch online: compelling series about the legacy of Death Row Records, with stories of an interesting and dangerous era in the history of hip-hop.

 

Watch this compelling six-part documentary series, Death Row Chronicles starting Thursday 8 March at 21:50 on BET (DStv Channel 129) and streaming live on DStv Now. There is also controversy around the series, with Suge Knight’s fiancée being arrested for helping him give interviews to BET.

 

 

 

 

 

At the height of it’s success, Death Row was unmatched in creativity, topping the charts and breaking sales records.  But all this came at a great cost of violence and murder. In the 1990s, the golden era of hop-hop, Death Row Records was more than a symbol of gangsta rap – its no-nonsense leader Marion ‘Suge’ Knight was it’s Godfather. He founded the label in 1991, and they promoted the ‘thug life’ as their chosen lifestyle.  Knight was no businessman, but his forceful attitude took the label to a peak of $100 million. The menacing music was a reflection of the record label’s reputation.

 

The series is part true-crime murder mystery and part hip-hop drama, and includes interviews and commentary from journalists and others who were around at the height of Death Row’s success. Key evidence is uncovered, misinformation and truth is revealed, and Shakur’s role is also highlighted, almost 22 years after his death in Las Vegas in 1996. His death was the beginning of the end for Death Row, with conspiracy theories about how the brash and hostile Knight was involved in the murder of the young superstar, despite his denials. Don’t miss the never-seen-before footage, which includes an interview with a witness of Shakur’s murder.

 

 

Don’t miss this series about the legacy of Death Row Records lives on forever, with stories of an interesting era in the history of hip-hop.  Find out how a promising footballer from Compton ended up evolving into a CEO who would influence and intimidate others, how he gave the record label wings to soar and how he brought it crashing down.

 

The truth is more horrifying, weird and compelling than fiction. Visit our True Crime Documentaries Playlist for more true crime shows.
