Radio Mirchi bags India’s only Gold for its ‘Five years of Nirbhaya’ campaign at the New York Radio Awards, under the public service announcement promotion category.
Aimed at honoring the world’s best radio programs, the New York Festivals International Radio Program Awards got entries from over 30 countries. This year’s winners were announced at the annual Radio Awards gala last week at New York City’s Manhattan Penthouse.
Speaking about the win, Tapas Sen, Chief Programming Officer, Radio Mirchi, said, “This is an exciting moment for us. The audio for the film was a creative outburst for the collective angst that most of us in the team feel and we’re glad that it’s made a mark on the community.”
Radio Mirchi has also bagged a Bronze Radio for ‘Ha jabara la’ under the Best Audio Book Fiction category. It has also won three finalist certificates for ‘Moneachhe tor’ under the Best Innovation category, ‘Hi Kolkata – telephone talk,’ under the Best Two Way Telephone Talk/Interview Show category and for ‘Help Dorris’ under the Best Human Interest Story category.
The prestigious awards saw India win nine medals (one Gold, four Silver and four Bronze) and bagging 22 finalist certificates.
