SALEM RADIO NETWORK host MICHAEL MEDVED has been named the recipient of the INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF POLICE UNIONS, AFL-CIO's 2014 Quill and Badge Award, honoring his on-air and in-print support of police forces.
The union's International Pres. SAM CABRAL said, “It is gratifying to see a media professional such as you take a clear look at a controversial issue (the police-involved shooting in FERGUSON, MO) and comment on it so accurately and effectively ... Your professionalism and skill is consistent with the standards we established when creating the Quill and Badge Award for Excellence in Communications.”
SRN VP/News and Talk Programming TOM TRADUP added, “It is a testimonial to what a unique talent he is that an AFL-CIO labor union -- with labor unions often considered as liberal-leaning -- would select a conservative Talk radio host like MICHAEL MEDVED to receive its annual Quill and Badge Award. MICHAEL transcends stereotypes of Talk radio which some critics often raise, and all of us at SRN are proud to have MICHAEL MEDVED on our SALEM RADIO NETWORK team.”
