Radio Islam Press Statement

29 MARCH 2012 – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

All Praise to the Almighty, Radio Islam has received 24 Nominations for the MTN Radio Awards 2012. We were nominated in 16 Categories, receiving multiple nominations in some categories. This has seen a huge increase from MTN Radio Awards 2011, where Radio Islam received 5 Nominations and took home 4 awards. Radio Islam received the second most overall nomination count from all radio stations in the country this year with Talk radio 702 the only station having garnered more nominations.

The first MTN Radio Awards took place in April 2010. Radio Islam’s “Women of Wonder” Tribute won the best Promotion / Stunt / Event Prize and Radio Islam was announced in the Radio Industry as a serious player after receiving the “Adjudicators Special Commandment” award in 2010. The MTN Radio Awards 2011 saw Radio Islam coming home with 4 awards including the big one, Community Radio Station of the Year.

Expectations increase with every year, so too does competition. This year the MTN Radio Awards has received double the number of entries from last year, submitted from all over SA, in the different divides of Commercial, Community, Campus and Public Broadcasters.

We request the Dua’s of the vast listenership of Radio Islam, that we are able to do well at the awards on the 14th April 2012. Remember that listeners are encouraged to continue sending sms’s with the letters “RIS” to 40616, for the “My Station” award. Please note that cut off is (Midnight) 08th April 2012. This award is to show which station has the most loyal listeners and last year Radio Islam listeners blew all competitors out of the water by winning the “My Station award for us. We are sure they will do it again this year, Insha Allah.
