KTAR wins Crystal Award for commitment to the community
LAS VEGAS — The National Association of Broadcasters’ awards were presented on Tuesday and KTAR-FM won a Crystal Radio Award for its outstanding commitment to community service.
Finalists were chosen by a panel of judges representing broadcasting, community service organizations and public relations firms. KTAR News 92.3 was one of 10 winners chosen among the 50 finalists.
“I am tremendously proud of the commitment our employees demonstrate day in and day out to uphold our company’s mission of serving and making a positive difference in our community,” said Scott Sutherland, VP/Market Manager for Bonneville Phoenix. “And for this to be our fourth Crystal Award win in a decade is remarkable.”
Judges cited, among other things, the KTAR News produced Give-A-Thon for Phoenix Children’s Hospital that has now grown to become the largest children’s hospital fundraiser of its kind in the United States.
This is the fourth time KTAR has been awarded a Crystal Radio Award. KTAR-FM won in 2014 and 2016 and KTAR-AM won one in 2007.
Since 1987, the NAB Crystal Radio Awards have recognized radio stations for their outstanding year-round commitment to community service. The presentation was part of the NAB Show held in Las Vegas.
