CBS RADIO News KYW/PHILADELPHIA has awarded the RICHARD MONETTI SCHOLARSHIP to high schooler GAVIN LICHTENSTEIN. One of the 171 students to graduate from KYW Newsradio’s 2012 Newstudies program, LICHTENSTEIN received a $2,000 scholarship.
The RICHARD MONETTI SCHOLARSHIP is awarded every year to the Newstudies student who demonstrates the most potential and enthusiasm throughout the six-week student reporter program. The scholarship is named for RICHARD MONETTI, a 1986 Newstudies graduate who was killed in the bombing of PAN AM Flight 103 over LOCKERBIE, SCOTLAND in 1988.
"KYW Newsradio is proud to continue the tradition of introducing high school students to the broadcast industry," CBS RADIO/PHILADELPHIA SVP/Market Manager MARC RAYFIELD said. "It’s also nice to be able to award those that did exceptionally well, and keep the memory of a former Newstudies graduate alive."
