Some great recognition for Croatian radio host Ljudevit Grgurić, who has won a special finalist award at the prestigious 53rd New York Festivals: World’s Best Radio Programs Awards last night in America…
Grgurić won the special recognition award in the Best Regularly Scheduled Talk Program category for his radio show titled ‘Hungry Ears: Amira Medunjanin, Music and Tears’, which is broadcast on HRT – Croatian Radiotelevision.
The award-winning radio show was a life-story feature on Bosnian singer Amira Medunjanin. Medunjanin was a guest on the long-running program and sung traditional Bosnian songs whilst taking about her life in war-torn Sarajevo to reaching success on the world stage. Grgurić was the only finalist in the category outside of English-speaking countries, with nice candidates from the USA, Canada, UK, and New Zealand. It is the first time that a Croatian program has been at the prestigious awards.
