(West Plains) – Earlier this week, Ozark Radio News told you about the news department receiving two nominations for the Missouri Broadcasters Association awards in two different news categories. We have received word that the Ozark Radio Network is actually up for three awards this year.
KWPM-AM and KUKU-FM Program Director Gerry Elam was also named a finalist in the Editorial category for a segment he named “Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?”. In the segment, he asked KUKU listeners to donate to the Heart of the Ozarks United Way, of which he was a board member at the time.
The Missouri Broadcasters Association told Ozark Radio News earlier this week that the letter containing the third nomination was sent out later than the other ones.
