One lucky listener will win a huge reward for voting – Two tickets to the MTN Radio Awards gala event, a smartphone with R500 airtime and an amazing trip to a destination in Florida USA, with three night’s accommodation and return flights sponsored by Delta Air Lines.  For more information on how to participate, please visit

“Voting is continuing briskly and I believe that this category is going to go down to the wire,” says Taryn Westoby, Chief Operating Officer of the MTN Radio Awards. “Last year, we had new winners in each of the categories and we are anticipating an exciting outcome once again.”

“It’s great to see listeners giving their favourite stations such excellent support,” says Brian Gouldie, Chief Marketing Officer of MTN. “This exemplary brand loyalty shows how technology can be an enhancer for customer intimacy.”

The MTN Radio Awards gala event will be held on the 12th of April 2014 at the Sandton Convention Centre. Tickets are available by contacting Michelle McBride on 011 803 2040 /

About the MTN Radio Awards

The MTN Radio Awards aims to present a credible, well-judged transparent programme that promotes and recognises excellence in radio, with the objective of ensuring that radio remains one of South Africa’s foremost media choices. It’s about rewarding those individuals and organisations who combine talent, hard work and skill to ensure that their listeners are compelled.

With radio still at the forefront of media utilised by South Africans to interact with their world, the MTN Radio Awards seeks to motivate radio people and organisations to constantly raise the bar in terms of their performance; with a firm focus on keeping their listener engaged and happy.

We’re proud to recognise and honour South Africa’s outstanding radio talent, from in-front-of-the-mic presenters to behind-the-scenes producers. In doing so, we hope to inspire people wishing to enter this dynamic industry. The 2014 MTN Radio Awards will be the fifth edition of this Awards programme. 

Winning an MTN Radio Award needs to be seen as a key achievement, something to be added to the individual’s or the station’s résumé.

Who will be amongst the winners at the Awards Banquet at the Sandton Convention Centre on Saturday 12th April?
