Washington, D.C. — The National Association of Broadcasters announced the 50 finalists for the 28th Annual Crystal Radio Awards. Since 1987, the NAB Crystal Radio Awards have recognized radio stations for their outstanding year-round commitment to community service. Winners will be announced and the finalists will be honored at the NAB Radio Luncheon. The Luncheon, sponsored by ASCAP, will be held Tuesday, April 14 during the 2015 NAB Show in Las Vegas.
This year there are two finalist stations from Tennessee, WRLT-FM in Nashville and WVVR-FM in Clarksville. Crystal Radio Award finalists were chosen by a panel of judges representing broadcasting, community service organizations and public relations firms. Finalists will be honored and winners announced at the Radio Luncheon, where Golden Globe nominee, New York Times best-selling author and nationally syndicated radio personality Marilu Henner will present a keynote address. Radio hosts of Southern California’s longest-running a.m. drive show, the “Kevin & Bean Morning Show,” Kevin Ryder and Gene “Bean” Baxter, will be inducted into the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame.
Congratulations to both our stations!
