CATHOLIC BISHOP OF NORTHERN ALASKA Religion KNOM-A-F/NOME, AK is the fourth station in history to receive the NAB CRYSTAL HERITAGE AWARD, recognizing a radio station's long-term commitment to community service. The award will be presented during the NAB SHOW RADIO Luncheon, held TUESDAY, APRIL 9th in LAS VEGAS and sponsored by ASCAP.
The CRYSTAL HERITAGE AWARD honors those stations that have won a total of five CRYSTAL RADIO AWARDS, which recognize radio stations' year-round community service efforts.
"It is such an honor for radio station KNOM to be recognized for outstanding community service with the 2013 CRYSTAL HERITAGE AWARD," said GM RIC SCHMIDT. "Five times we have been honored with a CRYSTAL, along with nine other exemplary community service oriented radio stations. This recognition helps to reinvigorate and encourage the KNOM staff and volunteers as we struggle to serve listeners in a 100,000 square mile signal area of remote WESTERN ALASKA."
Radio stations can submit entries for a CRYSTAL RADIO AWARD until JANUARY 31st. At the NAB SHOW RADIO Luncheon, NAB will honor this year's 10 CRYSTAL RADIO AWARD winners and 50 finalists. Personal money-management expert and national radio personality DAVE RAMSEY will be inducted into the NAB BROADCASTING HALL OF FAME and JOHN TESH will be the keynote speaker at the luncheon.
