New Categories this year include Best Legal Reporting; Current Affairs; Social Issues; Best Interview; Best Performance by an Actor/Actress; Best Sports Format; Student Drama; and Entertainment Program Promo.
Last year there were nine Golds won by UK radio stations with dozens more silver, bronze and finalists.
In 2012’s competition, RTÉ Radio Ireland’s exceptional work earned the network the Broadcaster of the Year Award for the second year in a row.
“We here at New York Festivals are very proud to recognize the creativity, innovation and quality exhibited around the world in radio today. Even as distribution platforms multiply across the airwave spectrum, one thing remains constant: the power of the individual voice. For the past few years, we added categories in keeping with our goal of honoring the exceptional and innovative work that the radio community is creating to engage audiences,” said Rose Anderson, Executive Director, NYF Radio Programs & Promos Awards.
