Phone lines are now open! Voting for the new Golden Headphones award at the Sony Radio Academy Awards is now available.
Radio presenters around the UK will know on May 13th if they have been voted the best in the country, at the Sonys in London.
Voting is open from today till 5pm on Friday May 10th for any presenter who has registered themselves. If you haven’t registered, you’ve missed the boat this year.
Sir Terry Wogan: “As the proud winner of a number of Sony Radio Awards over the years, it was gratifying to know that they were awarded by my fellow broadcasters. However, it’s always the listening public who decide what, and who, is the best on the radio.
“The Sony Golden Headphones Award will give the listeners their voice on the all-time great radio presenters.”
A Sony spokesperson commented: “The Sony Golden Headphones Award will showcase another great presenter – one who will make their own memorable mark on radio and we look forward to discovering whom the public chooses.”
The winner of the Sony Golden Headphones Award will receive a specially created trophy based on Sony’s best-selling MDR-1 headphones range and will be presented to the winner at the Sony Radio Academy Awards ceremony on Monday 13th May.
We’re told a leaderboard highlighting the top 20 most popular radio presenters will be updated in real time once voting starts on April 15th, allowing everyone to track progress, but this had not appeared yet on http://www.sonygoldenheadphones.com/
