Joburg’s Hot 102.7FM gets three nominations at the New York Festivals Radio Awards

Hot 102.7FM, South African radio station has received three nominations for the 2024 New York Festivals Radio Awards, the biggest radio awards in radio industry.

With such nominations year after year, it’s a sign that the radio station is doing something right to outsmart its peers in South Africa and the rest of the African continent.

Hot 102.7FM has been nominated in the following categories:

  • Morning Drive/Afternoon Programming: Best Music/Personality Show (Hot 1027 Breakfast)
  • Best News Report/Feature: Human Interest Feature – Beginner’s Guide to Online Dating
  • Best News Report/Feature: Human Interest Feature – Padkos & Playdough.

“Since joining Hot 102.7FM two years ago, Tara has made a huge impact on how we deliver and package our news content, bringing a different dimension to our storytelling,” says Lloyd Madurai, managing director of Hot 102.7FM.

“These nominations are just reward for the many hours she and her team have put in, and the stories are an example of how Hot 102.7FM likes to take a different approach to producing great radio.”

The station which only launched as a new Johannesburg-based commercial radio station in July of 2021, received seven nominations in 2023, resulting in the station being honoured as a finalist in four categories, and the only SA platform to be bestowed that honour.

“This is a pretty big deal and the reason it means so much is the fact that when we launched the HOT 102.7FM brand, our goal was always to ‘think big’ and measure ourselves against the world’s best and not just our competitors in the local market,” adds Madurai.

The New York Festivals Radio Awards honours radio content in all lengths and formats and across all platforms, from radio stations, networks, and independent producers from around the globe.
