Sony Awards 2011

Awards are given away for everything unutterably possible these days, from; beer of the year to even rear of the year but one awards ceremony that still has a genuine sense of quality is the Sony Awards. The Radio Industries equivalent of the Oscars. Well, this year’s annual gong handout was last night and a couple of new/old kids/men on the block scooped the top prizes.

Rolling Stones guitar plucker Ronnie Wood has been sharing rock n roll anecdotes on Absolute Radio for the last 12 months and picked up the Music Radio Personality Of The Year, pipping Jarvis Cocker, Chris Moyles, Scott Mills and Frank Skinner. It certainly wasn’t all bad for Frank Skinner though, who bagged himself a Sony Gold in the Best Entertainment Programme category, also on Absolute Radio.

Other winners include Talk Sport (Station of the Year), BBC 5Live Breakfast (Best Breakfast Show), BBC Radio 2's Simon Mayo Drivetime (Best Music Programme) and BBC 5Live’s Robbie Savage (Rising Star Award).
