A new award for UK Radio Brand of the Year and fewer categories than previous years make up the 2013 Sony Radio Academy Awards.
The event, which continues to be sponsored by Sony, will take place on Monday 13th May at the Grosvenor House Hotel, London, hosted once again by Chris Evans. Nominations will be released late March/early April via a live webcast.
Along with some revisions to existing categories, a new award, The UK Radio Brand Of The Year has been introduced to recognise the emergence of radio ‘brands’ across the UK and the overall ‘mood’ of the station.
Coverage of the event will be provided by Radio Today from the event, sponsored by Broadcast Bionics.
John Myers, Chairman of the Sony Radio Academy Awards told RadioToday.co.uk: “Entrants will notice a few changes this year, in particular that the number of categories has been slightly reduced to 28 awards to enter, achieved by dropping a couple of categories and merging others. We are confident that this streamlined approach will still showcase all that is great about the UK radio industry.”
All details regarding categories and the terms and conditions of entry can be found at radioacademyawards.org.
