Radio Magazine Wins 2002 Ozzie Award for Best Cover

Recognition by one's industry peers is the highest possible honor. Every year, radio stations compete for honors and awards, such as the Marconi Radio Awards and the Crystal Radio Awards. These awards are chosen by the radio industry to recognize the outstanding efforts of radio stations serving their customers. Similarly, publications have their own awards programs where magazines can be evaluated and honored for their outstanding efforts in serving their audiences.

The Ozzie Awards, now in its 16th year, is an awards program for magazines held by Folio: magazine and presented at the Folio: Show. This year, Radio magazine won the Gold Ozzie Award for Best Cover (B-to-B, circulation under 35,000 circulation) for the May 2002 cover, which was designed by Michael Knust, the publication's senior art director.

The Folio: Show's Ozzie and Editorial Awards, judged by an independent panel of industry experts, are given annually to consumer and business-to-business magazines for editorial and design excellence. At the awards ceremony presentation, The Folio: Show's Ozzie and Editorial Award judges commented on the May 2002 cover: “Well designed and very readable logo that has incorporated a special icon of a related element. The photo relates well to the subject of communication and the problem it can have. There is an effective touch added by weaving the string through the logo. The colors are subtle but effective and very readable.”

“It is an honor for our publication to be deemed as one of the design leaders in the industry. Our covers invite subscribers to explore the pages of each publication to find out the latest challenges and opportunities in the radio industry,” said Dennis Triola, group publisher of Radio magazine and Broadcast Engineering.

This is not the first award that Radio magazine has received. Radio has also received awards from the American Society of Business Publication Editors for design layouts and editorial features.
