Record entries for IMRO Radio Awards

90 Judges have spent the past week deliberating over the record number of 677 entries for the IMRO Radio Awards 2017. Having listened to almost 295 hours of the best of radio from both sides of the border, the 2017 Radio Awards have been the most hotly contested in their 17 years of existence. National, local and DAB broadcasters, producers and station staff have worked tirelessly to present the best of their work as an entry to this year’s awards. Over 185 nominees are today announced as the #IMRO17 shortlist.
 
The 2017 IMRO Radio Awards (formerly known as the PPI Radio Awards) will take place on Friday October 6th at the Lyrath Estate Hotel at a gala dinner where the secret golden envelopes will be opened to reveal the winners. Top names in Irish radio both on and off air make the trip to Kilkenny for the biggest night of the year in the radio industry in Ireland. Prior to the night, the Hall of Fame inductees will be announced on Friday 22nd September at a special event to be held at the BAI offices in Dublin. 
 
 Awards Committee Chairperson Sean Murtagh said: “The record number of entries is an indicator of the continuing level of support the radio industry has for the awards. The judges, who are all drawn from the Irish radio industry, all commented on the quality of entries this year which made for a difficult decision process.”
