News: Christian O’Connell Takes Gold in Tinseltown


While Britain basked in sunshine across the bank holiday weekend, radio execs from around the world were gathering in Hollywood to see the gongs handed out at this year’s Worldwide Radio Summit.

The sun was clearly still shining on Christian O’Connell who picked up the award for Best International Radio Personality, beating Ian Camfield (XFM), Dean Blundell (CFNY Canada), Gareth Cliff (5FM South Africa) and Kris Fade (Virgin Radio UAE).

What makes this award particularly special is that these awards are decided entirely by public vote – so thank you to anyone who took the time to vote for Christian.

This year’s summit saw a record turnout of just over 400 radio execs, programmers, social/digital and music industry professionals who came together at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood to celebrate some of the greatest radio in the world.
