Wimmera 3WM and MIXX FM radio team members are again among nominees for national industry awards.
The station operates as part of ACE Radio Broadcasters, which has with its workforce, a long history of attracting accolades.
Horsham station content director Adam Roche, radio news presenter Emma Clark, advertising traffic manager Danica Turvey and account manager Michelle Reid are all in the running for Commercial Radio Australia’s Australian Commercial Radio Awards, ACRAS.
Mr Roche, who as well as providing content leadership plays a major role in presenting a voice for the Wimmera radio-listening public, has a nomination in a best newcomer on air category.
Mrs Clark, the stations’ radio journalist and on-air presenter is a nominee for best news reader and presenter. It is her sixth nomination for the awards.
Miss Turvey, who works in administration, controlling commercial traffic and scheduling, and Mrs Reid, an account manager for radio and The Weekly Advertiser newspaper, are among nominations for a best newcomer off-air category.
Radio programs Country Today with Libby Price, The Morning Rush with Sean Cullen and Kate Meade and The Morning Crew with Gabi James and Dan Robinson are also nominations in a best networked program category.
The ACE Network, which has a heavy radio-station broadcast footprint with stations across regional Victoria and NSW and now with 3MP in Melbourne, has 23 award nominations.
ACE Radio Broadcasters Horsham general manager Brendan O’loughlin said having Wimmera staff among nominations for national awards was a credit to the individuals and their teams.
“It’s just reward for people who go above and beyond to produce high-quality products and services and also how well we measure up across national benchmarks,” he said.
The ACRAS usually occur annually, but based on COVID-19 circumstances, this year’s awards recognise two years of work. Industry officials will announce winners at celebrations scheduled for Sydney on February 13 next year.
