This past weekend, I received College Media Association’s 2014 award for Distinguished Multimedia Adviser at a four-year school. I’d like to thank CMA and the awards committee for thinking me worthy, the Vermont Cynic Editor-in-Chief Natalie Williams for nominating me and the Cynic staff for being really too nice in their congratulations.
It’s been a great honor advising UVM student media for the past eight-plus years, and I look forward to many more.
As they often do, the Cynic staff took home more than their share of award from the Best of Show competition at the national college media convention, sponsored by CMA and Associated College Press and convened this year in Philadelphia. This time, they placed in categories for four-year weekly tabloid newspaper, special edition and multimedia package.
As always, congratulations to them!
About half of the DJs at WRUV are non-students: often professional DJs who play in the local community as well as folks who dedicate 100 percent of their DJ talent to WRUV, just another part of WRUV that makes it unique in Northern Vermont.
So here is Melo Grant, a non-student DJ who’s been with us since 1984.
