About Sony Radio Academy Awards
The Sony Radio Academy Awards are without doubt the most prestigious awards in the radio industry’s calendar and the only event that brings the entire sector together to celebrate outstanding content and creativity.
Reflecting this, members of the organising committee are drawn from across the industry and all the major commercial radio groups and BBC Networks were invited to select a representative to serve on the 2012 committee. The result is a 14 strong group, chaired by Radio Academy Chief Executive, John Myers.
