Radio old-timers, new names star

Established radio shows that are already veteran prize-winners joined relatively unknown shows on the podium for the MTN Radio Awards.

It was almost a case of “same again”” when Talk Radio 702’s John Robbie Show took the prize for best breakfast show on commercial radio at the 2012 MTN Radio Awards on Saturday night, and Chris Gibbons’s Midday Report and Bruce Whitfield’s Money Show, both shared by 702 and Cape Talk, each earned two awards.

But there were also newcomers aplenty, including veteran broadcaster Tony Blewitt in a new suit, taking best breakfast show and best breakfast presenter on a community show for his slot on up-and-coming station Mix FM.

This is the MTN Radio Awards’ third year of existence and the competition attracted 866 entries.

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, CEO 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. 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.‚

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.‚
