There are a total of 16 awards including Best Podcast; Best Digital and Audio Service (to include internet and streaming services), as well as more traditional awards such as Best Local Station, Best National Station, Best Sports Show and Best Network Music Breakfast Show.
Each category has a shortlist of five, with a Bronze, Silver and Gold winner to be announced at the awards ceremony on October 19th at the First Direct Arena in Leeds. BBC Radio 2’s Sara Cox will host the awards ceremony which will feature live performances from the Kaiser Chiefs, Rick Astley and Gregory Porter.
