Ideas and technique to help you promote and image radio

Sony awards results in charts

Nobody wants the combined creative efforts of our most beloved industry reduced into a few graphics. For any creative it goes against the grain.

When I worked as a BBC producer and later an editor I was always quick to push-back against the time-and-motion-study approach to management or, at least, shield my teams from it. It’s far better in a creative team to have an idea, nurture it, gain support for it and then build it, pushing as hard and fast as it can go.

Then I remembered what the clever and wealthy people at McKinsey always say: if you can’t measure it you can’t manage it.

So here are the stats from last night’s Sony Radio Academy Awards in barcharts and pies. It’s an interesting study but is no replacement for listening to the great creative work and talking about the ideas behind it. We’ll aim to do that in the coming weeks when our podcast returns.

For now, enjoy the pretty charts:
