High excitement for radio awards
THE battle of the radio top dogs is set to crank up a notch when the MTN Radio Awards take place next month.
Who rules the breakfast roost between Metro FM’s The First Avenue, Talk Radio 702’s John Robbie, 180 with Bob on Kaya FM, Power Breakfast with Tim Modise on Power FM and 5FM’s Gareth Cliff?
Will the drive time crown go to DJ Fresh, T’bo Touch, Anele Mdoda or Georgie?
And will the Redi Tlhabi vs Eusebius McKaiser friendly fire cease when a clear victor is announced?
Whoever takes home the gong, there’s no denying that this is going to be the most exciting radio awards yet because of the level of competition.
Lance Rothschild, chief executive of the awards, teased that this year s event was going to be bigger and better” than before, but would not elaborate.
The awards are the only plat- form that pays tribute to the radio industry.
The panel of judges changes every year and we seek to find [judges] who have respect for the industry, he said.
Past winners have included 702’s The Money Show, The Fresh Drive, 702’s David O’Sullivan and Robert Marawa s sports show.
Kfm and 567 Cape Talk were also favourites last year.
