Eric Hirshberg to serve as Chief Judge for 2008 Radio-Mercury Awards


Eric Hirshberg, President and Chief Creative Officer of Deutsch Los Angeles, will serve as Chief Judge for the 2008 Radio-Mercury Awards, Radio’s premier creative competition. Winners will be announced on May, 21 at the gala event hosted at the Four Seasons Los Angeles Hotel at Beverly Hills.

Said Hirshberg: “Doing great Radio has the highest degree of difficulty in the business, because the idea has no visuals to hide behind. When done right, Radio can be one of the most compelling media because the listener’s imagination is a part of the action. I’m looking forward to hearing the best of the best.”
