Recognizing Overall Excellence and Performance in Radio
NAB Marconi Radio Awards, broadcasting leaders, programmers, on air talent and members of the press recognize stations and individuals for their excellence and performance in radio.
Established by the National Association of Broadcasters in 1989, the NAB Marconi Radio Awards are named after Nobel Prize winner and “Father of Wireless Telegraphy” Guglielmo Marconi.
The radio stations and personalities honored are selected by the NAB Marconi Radio Awards Selection Academy. The academy is made up of general managers, program directors, regional executives, owners, programming consultants and former radio executives from across the country.
WSGW has been nominated for Station of the Year (in a medium sized market).
Alpha Media President/CEO, Bob Proffitt commented on the announcement, “Serving the public’s best interests, in our local markets and communities, is the cornerstone of Alpha’s commitment to where we all live each and every day. We love our local cities and towns, and we love radio. I am extremely proud of our Alpha Marconi finalists as the awards are driven by excellence in performance in the radio business. To be recognized by the NAB and peers in their radio categories is an outstanding acknowledgement.”
The winners will be announced September 22nd at the NAB Marconi Radio Awards dinner and show held during the 2016 Radio Show in Nashville, TN.
