So, the noms are out for the Sony Awards, the UK radio industry’s big awards bash, and BBC Radio 4 leads the way with a massive 22 nominations. The most shortlisted commercial station is Absolute Radio, who appear in fifteen categories. People wise, both BBC 5Live’s Victoria Derbyshire and Absolute Radio’s Frank Skinner are up for three prizes each.

Announcing the nominations in London yesterday, Tim Blackmore, Chairman of the Sony Radio Academy Awards, told reporters: “Once again, more than 1000 entries have demonstrated the huge diversity and the impressive standards delivered by Britain’s radio industry.
