Congratulations to winners at the Arqiva Awards 2012

The Arqiva Awards took place last night at London's Westminster Bridge Park Plaza Hotel and was hosted by Absolute Radio's Christian O'Connell.

The awards recognise the best in commercial radio and PPL sponsored two awards: The PPL Breakthrough UK Artist of the Year - which was won by Jessie J - and The Most Played UK Artist on Commercial Radio, won by Adele.

Global led the awards, scooping eight gongs, with three of those for advertising, while Absolute Radio won station of the year (over 1 million TSA).

Andrew Harrison, Chief Executive of RadioCentre commented: "Congratulations to all our winners this evening – the standard of entries this year was particularly high, demonstrating once again, that commercial radio remains in rude health, producing innovative, creative content and compelling radio for our listeners."

There were a total of 28 categories at this year's awards, including the new category, Radio Station Event of the Year and seven categories for radio advertising, in what is the biggest annual celebration of UK commercial radio.
