"The Pick Hit Awards are limited to 20 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 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.
Part of the Pick Hits panel discussion included the announcement of HD Radio in smartphones. The panel decided that HD Radio in smartphones was worthy of a recognition, and so the technology was awarded a Technology Honor at the NAB Show.
The complete list of recipients will be published in the June 2012 issue of Radio magazine.
