"The Radio Mercury Awards continue to deliver on awarding radio and audio that will 'set the frequency' for the future of the medium, and I am honored that I get to serve as chief judge for the 2023 competition," said Winfield. "I am excited to get a roster of final round judges together to hear the work that showcases the growth in radio and audio."

"We are excited to have Sherman as this year's chief judge.
