Congratulations Winners!  

Please join us in congratulating the winners, runners-up and finalists of the 28th Radio And Production Awards! We have three newcomers to the “Trophy Club” this year, Joanne Dzierza, Suzan Goritz and Stephen Walton. Gary McClenaghan adds two more to his collection for a total of seven so far, putting him all alone at third place for the all-time trophy count! (* See note about trophy count at bottom of article.)

And while our hats are off to the above mentioned ladies and gents, we can’t underscore enough the value of the others who were involved in the final product. It’s almost always the perfect combination of production, copy and voiceover performances that provide the winning result. Congratulations to each of you, and we look forward to hearing more great work from you throughout the year on the Soundstage!

* A note about the trophy count referenced in the opening paragraph: We attribute the count to the producer of the entry in the case where the radio station or production house has paid for the entry. In the case where an individual has paid for the entry, and let’s say, was the copywriter or a voice talent, we will credit the trophy count to that person. But in effect, all the individuals involved in a winning entry have “merited” a trophy. So in one respect, there are many more people who have been involved in trophy winning entries that are not being tabulated in this count. But for our fun in keeping track, we give the count to the producer or the person paying the entry fee.
