MTN Radio awards 2012 - Winners announced

BY

The 2012 MTN Radio Awards were presented at a gala banquet at the Sandton Convention Centre last night. This is the MTN Radio Awards’ third year of existence and the competition attracted 866 entries, in excess of double the number of entries received in 2011.

The MTN Radio Awards, conceptualised and founded by Future Group’s Jeremy Maggs and Richard Lendrum, aims to promote excellence in radio – the medium that reaches more people in South Africa than any other medium. Lance Rothschild, CEO of the MTN Radio Awards says: “The awards banquet is the radio industry’s chance to get together as an extended family and to celebrate success, to highlight achievement and to ultimately honour those within the greater radio family whose great work ensures the longevity of this industry about which we are all so extremely passionate.”

“At MTN, radio has always played a key role in our media communications mix,” says Serame Taukobong, Chief Ayobaness Officer of MTN. “We launched the brand on radio, we have grown the brand on radio, and today we still use radio as one of the key influencers in communicating our messages to our customers. Our support for the MTN Radio Awards exemplifies our commitment to radio and underlines our intention to continue to use radio well into the future. We see the MTN Radio Awards as a driver for excellence in radio and as a motivator for stations to make increasingly compelling programmes that ensure listener enjoyment. After all, happy and fulfilled listeners remain loyal to their station.”

Entries in the MTN Radio Awards are reviewed by a panel of industry experts who score each entry individually. These scores are then centrally collated in order to determine the various winners. Rich Mkhondo, Chairman of the MTN Radio Awards says: “We received a bumper crop of entries this year and the quality of submissions was of a very high standard. I know that the adjudicators had their work cut out for them in listening to so many entries, but I am delighted with the outcome of the awards and believe that we have exemplary winners this year. I congratulate the broader radio industry on the depth and breadth of talent within the industry and I am enthused by the passion and dedication which shone through in the body of entries.”
