WRAL-FM’s NAB Crystal Radio Award
WRAL-FM received a prestigious Crystal Radio Award during the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) 2001 Convention this week in Las Vegas. WRAL-FM received one of only ten awards given out of list of 40 finalists.
WRAL-FM Network Engineer John Francioni attended the Radio Luncheon on behalf of the station. ASCAP sponsored the event on Tuesday, April 24.
Established in 1987, the Crystal Awards “recognize radio stations’ efforts to improve the quality of life in their surrounding communities.” NAB President & CEO Edward Fritts said, “The Crystal Radio Award … reflects the extraordinary efforts of the stations we are honoring. These winners are the best of the best and go above and beyond every day what is asked of broadcasters.”
WRAL-FM won a Crystal Award in 1996 and has been nominated five times. CBC’s Senior Vice President of Broadcasting Tom Allen congratulated WRAL-FM, saying that the award is “well deserved recognition for your attention and dedication to the listeners we serve. It’s important that community service is recognized with this NAB award, and very fitting that you should be a recipient.”
Congratulations to the staff of WRAL-FM!
