Shoutout for the Golden Ears

2022 / 11 / 02

October 20th was a grand night for all the talented Swedish radio and podcast producers when "Guldörat" took place at Vasateatern in Stockholm.

"Guldörat" (The Golden Ear) is a prize awarded annually to the Swedish radio and podcast industry by the Radio Academy. This year, the assignment to produce both the industry day and the awards gala went to Brand New Story with a clear ambition to raise the level of the event.

The award ceremony took place at the Vasateatern in Stockholm. Gry Forssell from Mix Megapol was the emcee for the gala evening, while Titti Schultz from P4 Extra led the day's seminar program. The audience nominated three Guldörat awards: This year's radio presenter was David Druid. Cecilia Düringer from P3 Historia was named Host of the Year - podcast and Podcast of the Year was P3 Dokumentär. A total of 63,491 radio and podcast listeners took part in the vote, which is a new record.

P3 Dokumentär also took home the Documentary of the Year category for the series Palme-utredningen från insidan, which was produced by Banda. The award for this year's entertainment podcast went to the drama production De fria, produced by Munck on behalf of Spotify. 

The Radio Academy board's honorary award went this year to Ina Jönsson at Viaplay Group Radio because she is "competent like few, liked by everyone and constantly on the move to develop and improve commercial radio".
