The station manager’s choice category of the Radio Awards was introduced in 2020 and aims to recognise individuals operating behind the scenes – unsung heroes – for their contributions to radio in SA.

The nomination process runs until 20 May 2022. 

Here’s how station managers can cast their nominations:

  • To receive a secure link to the online nomination portal, station managers can contact Michelle Rodrigues at rodriguesm@arena.africa.
  • Nominations can be made only by the station manager, and nominees must be 18 years or older.
  • All station employees are eligible for a nomination, irrespective of whether they’re full-time, part-time or temporary employees.
  • No more than three nominations may be submitted per station.
  • Station managers must complete the nomination form by providing a 200-word motivation before submitting the entry via the portal.
  • They have until 20 May to submit their nominations for this category.

The Radio Awards advisory board will adjudicate nominations based on the following criteria: credibility, fellowship, work commitment and personal performance as an unsung hero. Finalists in the station manager’s choice category will be announced on the www.radioawards.co.za website, as well as by direct notification to the relevant station managers. The winner of the Station Manager’s Choice award will be announced on at the 2022 Radio Awards event.

Taryn Westoby, head of Arena Events, which owns the Radio Awards, says: “The success of radio stations often relies on the hard work and commitment of people who operate in the background and who are generally not the familiar faces and voices that audiences come to know. They’re the individuals who keep the wheels turning and the morale high, and who know how to get things done.”

For enquiries about the station manager’s choice category, please contact Michelle Rodrigues at rodriguesm@arena.africa
