Eight WSDP-FM 88.1 Plymouth/Canton students receive awards from the MABF

Four sports broadcasters for the New 88.1 were among the state's best in the Michigan Association of Broadcasters Foundation High School and College Broadcast Competition. They joined four other Plymouth-Canton students in receiving awards from the MAB.

Sophomores Joe Zylka (Plymouth High School) and Logan Lazorka (Salem) received first place in the Sports Play-by-Play Category. Sophomore Adam Duxter (Canton) and Junior Mason Mills (Salem) received honorable mention.

"We receive a lot of positive comments when Joe, Logan, Adam and Mason broadcast games," said Bill Keith, Station Manager, "They work hard to deliver their play-by-play with skill and style."

The MAB Foundation will present the High School and College Awards during the conference luncheon in Lansing on Wednesday March 14. Broadcasters from throughout the state will be in attendance.

"I see the great work our students do every day so I'm not surprised that they received this recognition," commented Keith.

Seniors Kyle Linford (Plymouth), Christina Edgerton (Canton), Bill Turnau (Salem), and Laura Terkelsen (Plymouth) were the other Plymouth-Canton district students receiving recognition.

Fine Tuning

  • Kelly McMann has left her roles as Music Director and midday host for NextMedia's Pop WGER FM (Mix 106.3) Saginaw to become the afternoon host at Cleveland Pop station WQAL (Q104). McMann also spent some time behind the mic at WDVD FM 96.3 Detroit.

  • Radio Ink has recognized Tim Roberts, Program Director for CBS Radio/Detroit's Country WYCD FM 99.5, as their top Country PD in the U.S.A.

  • Calvary Radio Network WQKO-FM 91.9 Howe, IN has gone silent while the tower the station broadcasts from is reconstructed. Calvary hopes to resume operations of WQKO once it secures financing for replacement hardware and installation - a process that could take a minimum of several months. The silencing of WQKO also reportedly is affecting the organization's FM translator W274AQ 102.7 Battle Creek, which remains on the air but is now likely rebroadcasting WMJC FM 91.9 Richland.
