Newshour has won the Sony Radio Academy Award 2008 for the best news and current affairs radio show.

With the world's 24-hour news cycle now more intense and unrelenting than ever, there's never been a greater need for a programme that cuts through the background noise and provides you with the definitive take on the big stories of the day, brought to you by the BBC's global network of correspondents, with all the information you need to keep up with world events.

Twice each day, every single day of the year, we bring you an hour of news, comment and reporting from around the world.

You'll get an authoritative and extended explanation of the lead story of the day, compelling reports from the BBC's team of correspondents, and probing interviews with the news makers at the heart of every story.
