Congratulations to RESORT BROADCASTING CO. Talk WGMD/REHOBOTH BEACH, DE afternoon host BILL COLLEY, who got a surprise from the AMATEUR RADIO RELAY LEAGUE's annual meeting last week, receiving the 2010 BILL LEONARD, W2SKE, Professional Media Award for the Audio category. COLLEY's award from the AARL was bestowed for an interview with BILL DUVENECK of the SUSSEX AMATEUR RADIO ASSOCIATION.
The AARL said in announcing the award that "COLLEY exhibited the attribute most sought in all talk show hosts: that of eliciting the best in his guest. Through a well modulated and even flow, COLLEY and DUVENECK entertained and educated listeners about Amateur Radio and greeted callers with questions on why ham radio is a great hobby."
The award honors the late CBS NEWS President BILL LEONARD, an avid ham radio operator.
