The IMRO Radio Awards took place last night at the Lyrath Estate Hotel in Kilkenny.
A total of 652 entries were whittled down to a shortlist of 185 by head judge Peter McPartlin who drafted in 105 other judges to listen to hundreds of hours of radio programming.
Michael O’Keefe, Chief Executive of BAI congratulated the nominees and category winners and wished them all success on the night and in the future.
Newstalk took home gold in the Full Service Station category, while 98FM won Music Station of the Year and WLR FM topped the Local Station of the Year category.
Four Hall of Fame inductees included Ronan Collins, Sean Moncrieff, Paul Byrne and Seamus McKee.
Chair of the IMRO Radio Awards committee Tom McGuire said: “The opportunity to recognise and honour excellence in radio broadcasting across the island is what the IMRO Awards gives the industry.
"The reach of radio in Ireland is up there with the highest internationally and that's a tribute to all programme makers and a loyal audience. Long may the wireless continue to have the ear of the nation."
Eleanor McEvoy, IMRO Chairperson said “Each nominee for the IMRO radio awards, knows that they have been put forward by their fellow professionals in radio.
"I think that this is why the awards are so appreciated and sought after. It’s why the IMRO radio awards have become the most important event in the Irish broadcasting calendar.”
