Brian Murphy has been crowned ‘Radio Producer of the Year’ at the Radio Production Awards 2014. It’s the highest honour a producer can be given and it was a double for Brian who also scooped documentary maker of the year for the ad-funded programming series, Pioneers. This examined seminal moments in music and sound. Brian beat off competition from the BBC and Independent Sector.
His series The Pioneers was described by the judges as
some of the most impactful and memorable radio which the judges have ever heard.
In what marked a double success for Brian, he was also awarded the Best Documentary/Feature Maker for delivery with “immediacy and verve which made it compelling listening.”
Congratulations on nominations also go to Llia Apostolou and Joe Adams on being recognised among the best of the best.
The winners of the 2014 Radio Production Awards, the UK’s most prestigious radio production accolades, organised by The Radio Academy and the Radio Independents Group (RIG), were announced last night in a ceremony hosted by BBC Radio 6 Music’s Lauren Laverne.
The Awards recognise the unsung heroes of radio and reflect the achievements of individuals who have demonstrated excellence in UK radio production, both in-house and in the independent radio production sector.
