Congrats to CITADEL Country WKHX (KICKS 101-5)/ATLANTA, who won an EMMY for "Outstanding Achievement in Special Event Coverage" for the WSB-TV 2009 program, the "Salute 2 AMERICA Celebration."
The program featured two segments with CURB/NASHVILLE artist RODNEY ATKINS and WKHX morning personalities CADILLAC JACK, DALLAS McCADE and TUG COWART. ATKINS performed in the station's studios in front of an audience of servicemen and women.
WSB-TV Dir./Programming ART ROGERS said, "We appreciate the partnership with KICKS 101-5 and the station's help in making our annual 'Salute 2 AMERICA Celebration' honor those who serve our country. It was thrilling to see our service people enjoy RODNEY ATKINS' performance so much, especially after all they have done to help protect our freedoms, and we couldn't have provided this opportunity without the help of the radio station."
This is the first EMMY for DALLAS McCADE and TUG COWART and the second for CADILLAC JACK, who also received a statute in 2008 for co-hosting the television special, "Backstage at the CMA MUSIC FESTIVAL" with Channel 2's DAVID CHANDLEY.
