CW46 took home it’s very first APEX award from the network on May 17, 2012.   CW46 made submissions in three categories to potentially bring home three 2012 APEX awards.  The win came from the Local Sales Success Category. 

CW46 was well represented as a finalist in multiple categories including  “Model CW Affiliate”, “Best Launch Campaign” and “Local Sales Success”.   In the “Model Affiliate” category CW46 came in 2nd place. 

“Congratulations to every employee in our building on receiving the APEX award for “Local Sales Success,” said GM/VP Shawn Harris.  “This is an award that every single department contributed to and shares in.  This was our first submission ever to the APEX awards and I could not be more proud of the outcome,” added Harris.
