Sony DAB Rising Star Award - Now Open for Entries!
On Air with the Sony DAB ‘Rising Star’ Award
As inventor of the transistor radio in the 1950’s and sponsor of the prestigious annual Radio Academy Awards, Sony is proud to put its name to the Sony DAB ‘Rising Star’ Award.
Launched in 2008, this independent award recognises today’s up and coming radio stars, honouring DJs who have been broadcasting on radio for less than 18 months.
Previous winners of the award have included, George Lamb for BBC 6 Music, Singing Henry from Kerrang, Jarvis Cocker for BBC 6 Music and last year’s winner Robbie Savage for Radio 5 Live.
As the only people’s choice award The Rising Star Award is one of the most coveted wins of the night. Listeners can take part by voting for their favourite nominees of new radio stars at http://risingstar.sony.co.uk - this years winner will be announced live at the Sony Radio Academy Awards ceremony, so keep your ears tuned for that!
In its short life, the Sony DAB ‘Rising Star’ Award has proved immensely popular and influential. It’s another example of Sony’s commitment to radio, a commitment that is no better demonstrated than in our support of DAB. We have been leading the digital radio revolution for over a decade, working with broadcasters to develop technology that gives radio listeners a huge choice of top quality digital stations at the touch of a button and on a vast array of devices.
Our 2012 range continues the trend with Sony remaining one of the only brands to offer DAB and DAB+ options on a full range of home entertainment products. From the hugely popular traditional XDRS56DBP portable radio to the compact clock radio with iPod docking in the XDRDS12iP all the way up to the fully networked, high spec and stunning design of the CMTG2BNiP HiFi. Long live radio!
