Chair of the PPI Radio Awards committee, Sean Murtagh, said at the event: “The standard of entries is getting higher, the competition is getting tougher and the desire to win a PPI is greater than at any time in our 16 year history.

"Just making the shortlist is a huge achievement in itself and a sign from your peers that you’ve made the grade."

Michael O’Keeffe Chief Executive of BAI said: “The quality and diversity of submissions is testament to the strength and creativity of the sector and a strong indication of the nature of the services that can be enjoyed by listeners every day.

"I would like to sincerely congratulate all the nominees and deserved award winners of PPI Radio Awards in 2016."
