ACRAs 2018 by the numbers
There was a lot going on at #ACRAs2018 on Saturday night as the ‘who’s who’ of radio gathered in Melbourne to celebrate the best in the biz.
Now that we’ve caught our breath and shrugged off the ‘tiredness’, let’s review the winners for 2017:
Categories awarded on the night: 37 (up from 33 last year).
Finalists: Finalists were chosen from over 260 metro and regional stations in Australia.
Most number of awards won on the night: 3 (by both Kyle and Jackie O and Kate Tim and Marty including Kate Ritchie’s Best Entertainment Presenter gong):
** Some awards picked up by both FM and AM.
Awards picked up per network:
Looking at the results by network, SCA were ahead in both metro and regional.
Here’s how the Networks fared:
2018 was a tight race between the Metro Networks NE, ARN, SCA and MRN.
Grant Broadcasters emerged the winner from the independent regional operators.
Men once again outweighed women this year once again, but the split was much more even than in 2017.
Congratulations to all entrants and winners and to CRA and the organisers of this year’s event.
