Australian radio & audio to shine at The Star

Star-power and talent will be centre stage when the 35th Australian Commercial Radio and Audio (ACRA) Awards, hosted by Commercial Radio & Audio (CRA), take place at The Star in Sydney on Saturday 12 October.
The annual event celebrates on-air and off-air achievements with awards for excellence in radio, podcasting, production, news, entertainment, sales and marketing.
“The ACRA Awards are the biggest night of the year for the Australian radio and audio industry, and we are excited to be taking the party to a new venue for our 35th year,” said Ford Ennals, chief executive officer of CRA.
“It is always a memorable celebration of our vibrant industry, and the talented individuals and teams that make it so great, and every year we hope to make this night even bigger and better.”
Last year’s winners included Best on Air Team (metro) Brendan Jones and Amanda Keller, Station of the Year (metro) KIIS 1065, Best Talk Presenter (metro) Neil Mitchell, Best Current Affairs Presenter Ben Fordham, Podcast of the Year LiSTNR’s Children in the Pictures, and Best Networked Program The Kyle & Jackie O Hour of Power.
Entries across the eight ACRA Awards categories will be open from 2 April until 31 May. Tickets to the gala event will be on sale early September.
“We encourage everyone working in radio and audio to put forward their best work for the ACRA Award nominations, and we look forward to acknowledging your amazing talents,” Mr Ennals said.
The ACRA Awards are open to 260 metropolitan and regional commercial radio stations who are CRA members across Australia. They are peer-judged by panels of industry and specialist representatives.
