The Radio Academy Awards (formerly the Sonys) are probably the biggest night of the year for the radio industry and last night was a big success for 5 live.
We picked up three gold, one silver and three bronze awards. All the winners are listed below, but I wanted to particularly mention the three gold award winners.
The Day We Won Wimbledon is as creative a radio programme as you will ever hear – it actually had me in tears. It was produced by Steve Jones from the 5 live Sport team who is our tennis producer. It was a stroke of genius asking John Hurt to narrate the programme, and you must listen to commentator Jonathan Overend’s “Bond-villain” description of Novak Djokovic. Podcast here and here's a taste:
Danny Baker has a talent for surprising his audience every Saturday with his brilliantly distinctive programme. The judges describe him as “a personality completely at home on radio, with an ability to use the medium in original and engaging ways." Latest podcast here
Victoria Derbyshire has a unique ability in the way she interviews guests and she speak to listeners in a way that touches them. Her programme editor Louisa Compton led a very talented production team to deliver outstanding original journalism consistently over the last few years. Latest podcast here
