BBC RADIO 2 Executive Producer AL BOOTH was presented with the 2009 "Wesley Rose International Media Achievement Award" at this week's CMA INTERNATIONAL MEDIA RECEPTION. The award recognizes outstanding achievements in media which contribute to the development of Country Music outside the UNITED STATES.
BOOTH said: "Country Music is always what I wanted to work, and I wanted to work in Country Music radio. That's not very easy in the U.K., so to get this award is absolutely incredible. I want to thank CMA for all they do to help us put on our CMA show, which is going out across the U.K. on FRIDAY night. I'd like to also thank the presenters I work with quite often, BOB HARRIS and NICK BARRACLOUGH, who are both friends and really good guys."
BOOTH is the Country Music specialist at the UNITED KINGDOM's most popular radio station, BBC RADIO 2, with a weekly reach of nearly 13.5 million listeners.
