Australia Today, the national news program hosted by Steve Price and Natarsha Belling, has been awarded a Finalist certificate for Best Digital Talk Program at the prestigious New York Festivals Radio Awards, held last night in Las Vegas.
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. Embracing all aspects of the radio and audio industries, categories mirror today’s global trends and recognise innovators in 14 categories.
Launched one year ago, Australia Today is a daily, live streamed morning news show, exclusive to LiSTNR and broadcast on nine Triple M regional stations. It is the country’s first truly digital audio live to air conversation, with national talk back, debate, and news updates.
SCA Head of News and Information, Melanie Withnall, said: “I’m so proud of the Australia Today team for the work they do every day and their focus on regional Australia. To see them get this recognition on the world stage is fantastic and a testament to the chemistry between Steve and Natarsha and the interesting news and views that they share.”
Australia Today is available daily on LiSTNR and from 9am to 11am on Triple M in Coffs Harbour, Griffith, Orange, Port Macquarie, Wagga, Dubbo, Mt Gambier, Toowoomba, and Maryborough.
