Winners of the 2024 Radio Mercury Awards were revealed on Thursday evening at the 33rd annual awards presentation in New York as well as live streamed, courtesy of Hubbard Radio. "No surprise, the Radio Mercury Awards continues to be where the best in radio and audio creativity is discovered. As a long-time entrant, sometimes winner, and forever fan, it's been an honor to serve as chief judge," said Guesthouse Audio Executive Creative Director Mitch Bennett. "As final-round judges, we laughed, debated, and were inspired that 129 years after Marconi invented this thing, radio can still delight and surprise us."

"I have been an active fan of the Radio Mercury Awards throughout my broadcasting career, and having the opportunity to experience the judging process reinforced my belief in the awards' importance in radio and advertising today," said RAB President/CEO Mike Hulvey, who is also chair for the Radio Creative Fund. "The awards competition truly helps us propel our medium forward."

This year's Radio Marketer of the Year Award was presented to O'Reilly Auto Parts. WOR/New York air talent Mark Simone bestowed the award to O'Reilly Auto Parts VP, marketing & advertising Hugo Sanchez. "O'Reilly Auto Parts is a longtime and committed partner of the radio industry, and we are delighted to honor them with this fitting recognition," said Simone.

The ceremony included the following air personalities as the event's presenters: Mike Adam from NEW 102.7 in New York, Errol Barnett from CBS News, Maxwell from iHeartMedia's Z100, Mark Simone from iHeartMedia's WOR 710 and Shelley Wade from Audacy's NEW 102.7.
