Michigan Radio named Public Radio Station of the Year
Michigan Radio, the public radio service from the University of Michigan, has been named Public Radio Station of the Year for 2009 by the Michigan Association of Broadcasters (MAB). The award was announced Wednesday evening at the MAB's annual Great Lakes Broadcasting Conference in Lansing. This is the eighth time in nine years that Michigan Radio has been named Public Radio Station of the Year.
The Station of the Year recognition is based on total points that a station receives in various judging categories. Michigan Radio was recognized as Station of the Year in Group 2, which is for public radio stations with more than $2 million budget.
In addition to the Station of the Year award, Michigan Radio received a total of fourteen Broadcast Excellence Awards, including eight Best in Category awards and six Merit awards.
