At a glittering ceremony in the Lyrath Estate Hotel Kilkenny, Radio Nova won gold not once but twice at the 2022 IMRO Radio Awards were announced. The first in-person awards since 2019, the room was electric with the radio industry from all over the island meeting once again! The ceremony was presented by Radio and TV broadcaster Dermot Whelan to a packed room with many of Ireland’s well-known radio presenters, producers, programme staff and radio station heads.
Radio Nova’s Morning Glory with PJ Gallagher and Jim McCabe pocketed gold for COMMUNITY / SOCIAL ACTIONHILL TO HILL FOR JACK & JILL and Dee Woods won gold for Radio DJ 2022 where silver and bronze were also female DJs.
Listen to the attached to hear PJ Gallagher and Jim McCabe’s hilarious thoughts on their win,.
Dee Woods said of her win, “All the award cliches are true: I was tickled pink just to be nominated in this year’s IMRO awards, let alone in the mother of all categories: Radio DJ of the year, but to actually win this is next level. The excitement was off the charts anyway for this year’s post-covid ceremony, and now as an award winner I’d love to be able to say I can be really demure and accept this accolade with modest grace but hell I’m getting this emblazoned on a t-shirt! This absolutely rocks and I’ll never forget the IMRO awards of 2022. I’m blown away. Sincere thanks to everyone who’s made this Dee a DJ of the Year. “
