Over the last 18 months more than ever before, we have seen first-hand just how vital a role radio plays in our day to day lives; radio informed us, kept us connected to one another and entertained us, but is was also particularly important for those of us who work in the music industry, helping to break new acts and providing much needed royalties for songwriters, composers publishers and artists.

We would like to congratulate those of you who made the shortlist and we would like to wish you all the very best on the night for the 2021 IMRO Radio Awards”.

Radio continues to play a crucial role in keeping audiences informed and entertained, especially in these challenging times, and the prestigious IMRO Awards recognises the dedication of station personnel in the production of high quality and diverse radio content. The BAI is delighted to be continuing its sponsorship of the Awards this year and would like to congratulate all the nominees and wish them all well on the Awards night.”
