BIG FM has reportedly won four awards at the New York Festival (NYF) Radio Broadcasting Awards 2007, for which the award ceremony will be held on June 28 this year. The station is supposedly the only Indian winner from the 106 Indian entries at this year’s awards and was also the only Indian station to get shortlisted for the awards.
The station has won a Bronze for ‘Best Sports Coverage’ for the ‘BIG Cup’, and certificates of merit for ‘Best Personality’ -- RJ Anirudh; ‘Best Writing’ and ‘Best Station promotion’ -- ‘Hum BIG FM’ promotion.
Manav Dhanda, National Programming Head, BIG FM, said, “We are very happy that our efforts were recognised at the NYF Radio Broadcasting Awards 2007, which is one of the most coveted international awards for the radio category. Such acknowledgement works as a great motivator for the team, who strive even harder to put forth a better product for our listeners.”
The ‘BIG Cup’ coverage had the station’s morning shows featuring Harsha Bhogle and the evening shows by Shekhar Suman titled ‘BIG Googly’. RJ Anirudh Chawla hosts the 3 pm to 6 pm show on weekdays. The ‘Hum BIG FM’ promo had been nominated for both script and programming in the ‘Best Writing’ and ‘Best Station Promotion’ categories.
