Congratulations Winners

Please join us in congratulating the winners, runners-up and finalists of the 26th Radio And Production Awards! We have two newcomers to the “Trophy Club” this year: Dave Calvert and Azeem Haq grab their first trophies in the Large Market Commercial and Best Feature Production categories respectively. Ron Tarrant, Gary McClenaghan and Howard Hoffman each pick up their third trophies, while Joe Meinecke and Sheldon Hovde each pick up their fifth trophies! And Ross McIntyre once again extends his all time lead with trophy number twelve! ***

And while our hats are off to the above mentioned gents, we want to acknowledge all the others who were in-volved in the final product. It’s the brilliant combination of production, copy and voiceover performances that give us the winning result. That’s why we always list the others involved. Congratulations to each of you, and we look forward to hearing more great work from you throughout the year, and next year for the 27th RAP Awards!
