The 2018 The Industry Observer Awards presented by TicketWeb were held tonight at the Sydney Cricket Ground culminating in triple j’s Ben and Liam taking Radio Host of the Year, Adam Briggs taking out the Industry Impact Award, and Sony Music’s Denis Handlin AO taking out the prestigious Executive of the Year award.

Taking over from Matt and Alex on triple j breakfast last year, Ben and Liam had a mountain to climb. The Radio Host of the Year winners won over listeners and the industry alike with their enthusiasm and even featured on The Project on On R U OK? Day when Liam opened up about how tough the year had been in an honest, vulnerable and powerful on air monologue.
