Radio all-rounder Steve Barker, has arrived back in Australia with a big trophy and bigger smile.
He was one of a handful of Aussies who scored a trophy at the New York Festivals Radio Awards, the international awards recognizing the World’s Best Work in Radio.
35 countries were in contention this year.
Steve collected a bronze art deco replica microphone for his coverage of last year’s Sydney to Hobart Yacht race, an event he passionately covers every year and he says, “To present the Blue Water classic (in non-yachtie speak), the longest and last on the Aussie sporting calendar, over the four days is always a thrill and geez I’m happy the judges in Manhattan felt the same!”
