Las Vegas - 2011 NAB Show - Apr 14, 2011 - Radio magazine announced the winners of the Pick Hit Awards for the 2011 NAB Show. The Radio magazine Pick Hits panel selects the top 15 new products introduced at the convention.

"The Pick Hit Awards are limited to 15 winners, which maintains the value and prestige of the award," says Chriss Scherer, editor of Radio magazine. "In addition, the Pick Hit Award judges follow a strict set of rules and make their selections independently and anonymously, which is a further testimony to the proven value of the award to radio broadcasters."
The Pick Hit Awards were first presented at the NAB Convention in 1985, making them the oldest technology award at the convention. The Pick Hit Awards are selected by a panel of judges who are radio broadcast engineers from radio stations, radio networks and radio production facilities. The Radio magazine staff has no influence in the Pick Hit Awards decision, which ensures that there is no bias in the selections. The official Pick Hit rules require that the winning products must fit a recognized need in radio, are priced within reason, are available within the current calendar year and have never before been exhibited at the NAB Convention.
The complete list of recipients will be published in the June 2011 issue of Radio magazine.
