Being nominated for a Marconi Award is one of the most prestigious honors a radio station can earn. Winning one raises a brand’s profile and places the station and its parent company in elite company among the broadcasting community.
The nominees and categories are now set and once again the sports radio format is well represented. Stations who were picked as finalists earned the honor based on their performance during the 2016 calendar year.
In the category of Sports Station of the Year, five stations were selected. Those stations are WEEI and 98.5 The Sports Hub in Boston, 101 ESPN in St. Louis, 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia and Sports Radio 1310 The Ticket in Dallas.
WFAN in New York was also chosen by the committee as one of the top five finalists for the Large Market Station of the Year category.
The Marconi Awards will be presented September 7th in Austin, Texas at the NAB Radio show. Broadcast industry professionals can find out more information, including how to purchase tickets to the event, by clicking here.
