Newstalk has won the Gold award in the Best Innovation category at the New York Festivals Radio Awards.
The winning programme, 'Between The Lines – Living with a Disability', was a special edition of the show presented by Stephen Daunt.
It was broadcast last December and produced by Stephen Jordan, and will be broadcast again this coming Saturday at 7pm as part of Newstalk's 'Soundscape' programme.
Stephen Daunt has a speech disability, and so presented the programme with the support of text-to-speech technology.
To mark UN Day of the Disabled Person, 'Between The Lines' gave a platform to five people to reflect on what it is like to live with a disability in Ireland.
Among them was Robin Barnett, the UK ambassador to Ireland, who spoke honestly about his childhood and living with a disability.
Commenting on the win, Stephen Daunt said: “Making the show was special. To have it recognized on a worldwide scale by my peers is mind blowing.
"Thanks to all the team who believed in the idea and had the vision to make it happen.”
Newstalk's managing editor Patricia Monahan said: “We are delighted to be recognised on the world stage and to win with a programme as special as this.
"To have a programme presented using text-to-speech technology was a first.
"Stephen and the team were determined to make it happen and did a great job of bringing real life stories to air.
"I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate everyone involved."
Newstalk also received two Finalist Certificate Awards in the Sport and Recreation Category for 'A New Don in Dublin' and 'Mam, That’s For You: The Ken Doherty Story', produced by Eoin Brennan.
Francesca Lalor was also nominated for her 'Knives at Dawn' documentary in the Profiles/Community Portraits category.
