Radio 4 wins six Sony Radio Academy Awards

11th May 2010

The BBC scooped a number of prizes at the recent Sony Radio Academy Awards, with Radio 4 taking home six accolades.

Radio 4 won the breakfast show of the year in the 10 million-plus category for Today, with judges praising its coverage of a 'year of great social and economic upheaval'.

Jenni Murray's interview with Sharon Shoesmith, who was dismissed as the head of Haringey social services over the Baby P case, took the best interview honour for the station, while U2 singer Bono won the best music special prize for his programme about Elvis.

Meanwhile, Radio 4 took home the speech broadcaster of the year title for Sir David Attenborough's Life Stories, bronze in the best speech programme section for Woman's Hour and bronze in the news and current affairs category for Today.

However, the coveted UK station of the year gong was awarded to BBC Radio 5 Live, with Absolute Radio taking the silver and talkSPORT the bronze.

Tim Blackmore, chairman of the Sony Radio Academy Awards, commented: 'Radio is truly one of our most creative industries and the proof is in the work of this year's gold, silver and bronze winners.'
