WRUV receives top state honor for College Radio Day
WRUV-FM, the student-run radio station of The University of Vermont, this week received the “Outstanding Leadership” award for serving as the first-ever Vermont State Headquarters for College Radio Day, which sought to raise a greater, national awareness of the many college and high school radio stations that operate in North America.
College Radio Day officials presented the award in honor of “WRUV’s committment to the medium of college radio.”
Student leaders said they were surprised to receive the award.
“WRUV really is committed to college radio, so it’s awesome to get the recognition because we are committed to alternative college radio,” Station Manager Emmy Ford said. “It was an honor to be selected as the first state headquarters.
“I like to think that we did our small part in bringing wider awareness of college radio to the public.”
College Radio Day 2011 took place Tuesday, Oct. 11. This year’s day will take place Tuesday, Oct. 2, according to College Radio Day.
