High ex­cite­ment for ra­dio awards

Sunday World - - News - SIXOLISIWE NDAWO

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.
