A further two categories, Best Podcast and Best Journalistic Content, will also be part of the awards and nominations for these two special categories can be submitted to the Facebook page #Coronavirusradioideas closing date 7th September.
Ken Benson, Partner, P1 Media Group, said: “When we joined with Benztown to open this page back in March, we knew that the world of radio and podcasting was full of innovative people with a special connection to their audiences and listeners. What’s emerged from these awards is that radio is more than ever at the heart of communities and is a place in which listeners put their trust.”
Andreas Sannemann, CEO, Benztown, commented: “To all the people who nominated their station, themselves or their ideas, we salute you and we are sorry we couldn’t have all of you as nominees, as the field was incredibly strong. If you haven’t read through the Facebook page and work in radio or podcasting, we highly recommend you do so as it’s truly inspirational. As an industry, we can be proud of how we have supported people in this worldwide pandemic.”
