The NAB Crystal Radio Awards acknowledge radio stations that demonstrate year-round commitment to service to their communities. To enter, a station must submit a 12-page document describing their service to the community for the past calendar year. “People across America rely on their broadcasters to be local leaders, as well as to keep them informed in times of crisis or need,” said NAB Executive Vice President of Radio John David. “We are proud to recognize radio stations for their dedication to serving their community.”
Crystal Radio Awards finalists and winners are chosen by judges with a broadcast and community service background. Entry information is available on NAB’s Web site or by calling Chris Suever at 202-775-3511. Finalists will be announced March 16 and winners will be announced at the NAB Radio Luncheon. The Luncheon, sponsored by ASCAP, will be held Tuesday, April 21 during the 2009 NAB show in Las Vegas. Online registration will soon be available for news media reporters interested in covering the NAB Show.
