Regional Radio Group was honored last night at the 47th “Awards for Excellence in Broadcasting,” an annual contest sponsored by the New York State Broadcasters Association (NYSBA) recognizing outstanding achievement among New York’s radio and television stations. The awards were handed out at The Sagamore Resort Hotel in Bolton Landing.
98.5 WCKM-FM was awarded for “Outstanding Public Service Announcement/Campaign” (for Glens Falls Hospital Cancer Services Program) and “Outstanding Sportscast” (Dan Miner’s High School Sports Scoreboard), while WCQL-FM (Hits 95.9) won for “Outstanding Commercial” (New Student Housing At SUNY Adirondack).
Regional Radio Group Owner and General Manager Clay Ashworth said “I couldn’t be more proud of those who were involved in the creation of the Cancer Services and the New Student Housing campaigns, which both won awards for excellence, and Dan Miner for his sixth award for excellence for the High School Sports Scoreboard.”
NYSBA President David Donovan said “This prestigious honor celebrates stations that provide good stewardship and excellent service to their communities. We admire and commend their efforts to serve the public interest.”
