South African radio station HOT 102.7FM has once again made an impact on the global stage, picking up three nominations for the 2024 New York Festivals Radio Awards – widely regarded as the ‘Oscars of the radio industry’. This follows the seven nominations the station received at last year’s Awards, which resulted in the station being honoured as a finalist in four categories, and the only SA platform to be bestowed that honour.

The New York Festivals Radio Awards provides a showcase to celebrate world-class storytellers from around the globe; their 66-year legacy honors creative innovation and excellence in broadcast and audio content across all genres and platforms. HOT102.7FM has been nominated for 1 x Best Music/Personality Show, as well as 2x Best News/ Human Interest Feature (see below press release for full details).

This is fantastic news for South Africa’s competitiveness on the global arena of talent, as affirmed by a world-class Grand Jury comprising of distinguished radio industry peers and leaders from across six continents. This jury panel of 100+ super-achievers and esteemed content creators, industry visionaries, and iconic voices, includes directors, producers, journalists, writers, and sound artists who personify passion and innovation in audio entertainment. They bring with them a collective wealth of hands-on knowledge, and their commitment to excellence, as well as proven mastery of their craft in fields as diverse as investigative journalism, audio books, drama, talk, and live events show how robust the world of radio is today.

Lloyd Madurai, Managing Director at HOT 102.7 FM, is eager to discuss the nominations, the contributions of the presenters to these accolades, their significance for recognition of SA talent globally, and their broader impact on investment for the South African media landscape.
