“At CBC we treat our viewers, our clients and employees with dignity and respect.  We provide them with the best services possible,” read CBC’s award nomination.  “We do all these things because they are the right thing to do.”

RSM McGladrey Managing Director Ron Wainwright made the presentation to CBC.  The RSM McGladrey Integrity in Business Award recognizes companies that demonstrate dedication to corporate responsibility, integrity and ethics.

“CBC is not a successful company if there are parts of our community that are not successful,” said CBC President & CEO Jim Goodmon in response to receiving the reward.  And he spoke of the same standards in regards to CBC’s treatment of its employees, saying CBC wants them to be “successful in their lives.”
