A big Congratulations to our Overall Winner today: The Gold Award !
It's been a real pleasure organising this first Award for New Presenters in Ireland.
Thanks to all our entrants - it wouldn't have existed without you.
Thanks also to the judges:
Henry Owens, Keith Cunningham, Dusty Rhodes, Toni Tenaglia and Alan Swan.
I will be sending the Winners list to PDs across the country because they need to know the type of talent we have in Ireland.
Listen to the Shortlist and you will agree with me - the future of radio here is in very good hands. In fact, I can't wait to hear this batch of 'newcomers' take over the major gigs...they'll be brilliant.
So - well done and here's to the future :-)
