From the judges’ comments …..

“Tony’s entries showed us just how powerful the medium of radio is when it comes to telling great stories. His subject matter wasn’t easy – male suicide in rural Australia and also palliative care for children at Bear Cottage in Sydney – one of only two children’s hospices in Australia. His interviews were well researched and his lovely manner encouraged the subjects to reveal their story with a candour rarely heard on radio. He got to the heart of two very difficult issues and it was compelling listening. With a steady hand and a compassionate ear he allowed a mother to speak about the loss of her child through illness…and there wasn’t a dry eye in the judging room…Well done Tony, keep up the good work.”
