At RCS, not only do we operate sales offices around the globe, we’re also a part of the broadcasting communities that we serve. Sometimes that means sponsoring events or awards at professional trade organizations. RCS Australia is proud to be a Silver Partner with ACRA (Australian Commercial Radio Awards), and for over ten years, sponsor of the Best Music Presenter awards.
The ACRAs are the pinnacle event in the Awards weekend, which also includes the National Radio Conference. The Awards weekend is the only weekend of events in Australia dedicated to the commercial radio industry and is the largest gathering for commercial radio professionals in the southern hemisphere.
The national Awards include 39 categories and cover all areas of radio broadcasting. Winners are awarded in each category across three divisions: metropolitan, provincial and country commercial radio stations.
Last year, the Best Music Presenter awards went to: Bryce Ruthven, Edge FM, Deniliquin NSW, ACE Radio Broadcasters – Country; in the Provincial division, Josh Olek,, K rock, Geelong VIC, Grant Broadcaster; Melissa Doyle, smoothfm, Sydney NSW, NOVA Entertainment in the Metropolitan division.
The ACRAs are held annually, and were previously known as the RAWARDS, first held by FARB in 1989. The ACRAs are held as part of the Awards weekend in either Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane or the Gold Coast.
The 2019 ACRAS will take place Saturday October 19th at the Royal International Convention Center in Brisbane.
