AudioBoom was recognized with one of The Radio Academy’s new Audio & Radio Industry Awards. It received the ARIA for best digital audio service. Podcasting company Acast and Live @ Wimbledon Radio were also nominated in that category.
The ARIAs are a new initiative from the UK academy in association with Leeds Beckett University and LeedsBID. “The awards give the radio industry the opportunity to showcase the breadth and range of opportunities on offer in this exciting industry, ensuring we attract the brightest talent in future to work in radio,” Roger Cutsforth, The Radio Academy’s managing director, said when the new awards were first announced.
