New York Gold for Kim Hill

New York Gold for Kim Hill

Radio New Zealand presenter Kim Hill has won her second major international broadcasting award of the past year, being awarded a Gold Medal by the Grand Jury at the 2013 New York Festival Radio Awards.

The latest award, a Gold Medal for Best Talk Show Host, was announced in New York this morning. In November Kim was named International Radio Personality of the Year at a special awards ceremony in London.

The prestigious New York Festival Awards are judged by an international panel of radio professionals from five continents and over thirty countries.

Rose Anderson, Executive Director of the New York Festival Awards, has noted the importance and power of individual voices in radio broadcasting:

“We are very proud to recognize the creativity, innovation and quality exhibited around the world in radio today. Even as distribution platforms multiply across the airwave spectrum, one thing remains constant: the power of the individual voice.”

Radio New Zealand Chief Executive and Editor-in-Chief, Peter Cavanagh, says the latest award emphasises Kim Hill’s outstanding skills as a long-form interviewer:

“Twice in the past year Kim has gone head-to-head with the very best of the world’s broadcasters and both times has come out on top. With two major international awards and three New Zealand Radio Awards to her credit in less than 12 months, Kim has clearly been recognised as one of the outstanding broadcasters of her generation.”

As Peter Cavanagh noted the New York Gold for Best Talk Show Host continues a stellar year for Kim Hill.

In November she received the 2012 International Radio Personality of the Year award from the Association for International Broadcasting in London and last month her achievements were acknowledged with an Outstanding Contribution to Broadcasting Award presented by industry colleagues at the New Zealand Radio Awards.

Kim Hill dominated the 2013 New Zealand Radio Awards winning Best Talk or Current Affairs Host ahead of strong competition from commercial broadcasters and Saturday Morning with Kim Hill also won the award for Best Weekly Series in the Spoken Programme category.
