Regular listeners may know him as the third member of popular Today Network drivetime trio Fifi, Jules and The Other One. But it seems that show anchor Byron Cooke is better known overseas.
He’s picked up the title of International Radio Personality of the Year 2012 at the World Radio Summit in the US, beating the likes of the BBC’s Zane Lowe, Chris Moyles and Steve Lamacq along with Triple J’s Richard Kingsmill.
According to the Southern Cross Austereo press release, Cooke said, “I was totally shocked to get the nomination and to see my name alongside four of music radio’s heavy hitters is nothing short of an honour.”
Not half as shocked as Dr Mumbo suspects Chris Moyles was.
