Trailblazing DJ and radio royalty Janice Long is to be honoured with the inaugural Pioneer Award at this year's ARIAS.

Janice Long left a huge legacy in British broadcasting. Her death at Christmas hit the hearts of everyone in the radio industry and her loyal listeners, who had followed her career for over 40 years.

The first woman to have a daily music show on Radio 1 - who went on to present at XFM, Radio 2, 6Music, BBC Local Radio, Radio Wales and Greatest Hits Radio - Janice was a true trailblazer and paved the way for women in broadcasting.

Looking back over her illustrious career, with tributes from some of the many artists Janice supported in her career, Radio 2's Zoe Ball will present Janice’s family with the inaugural Pioneer Award at this year’s ARIAS, taking place on 3 May at The Adelphi Theatre in London.

Tickets for the event are still available.
