Bauer’s Hits Radio wins Station or Network of the Year at the ARIAs – RadioToday

Hits Radio has won the UK Station or Network of the Year award at the Audio and Radio Industry Awards 2022.

Elsewhere at Bauer, The Dave Berry Breakfast Show won Best Music Breakfast Show and The John Myers Award for Best Local Station of the Year went to Clyde 1.

The BBC took home 12 Gold awards in total, with Radio 4 claiming the first spot in six categories – the Today Program for Best News Coverage; Woman’s Hour’s Emma Barnett for Best Speech Presenter; The Skewer for The Comedy Award; The Nazi Next Door for Best Factual – Single Program; Little Blue Lines for Best Fictional Storytelling and Woman’s Hour: Trafficked in Plain Sight for The Impact Award.

Others BBC winners included Radio 1Xtra for Best Station Sound, the last Radio 1 Dance Party with Annie Mac for Best Music Entertainment Show and BBC Three Counties’ Justin Dealey for Best Local Radio Show.

News UK took home one Gold award for talkSPORT’s marketing.

Once again there were no winners for the UK’s biggest commercial radio group, as Global does not support the Radio Academy or the awards.
