Alternative IMRO Awards



In October 2017, the great and the good of Irish Radio attended a gala at Lyrath House, Kilkenny to reward those who have in the previous year contributed to the multi layered tapestry that is Irish Radio . But these awards recognise the contribution of stations, shows and presenters in a commercial industry where an award helps to bolster advertising revenue and increased contracts. But there is more to Irish radio than commercial broadcasting and to try and balance this up the Irish Broadcasting Hall of Fame has created a number of new awards and winners.
