Excellence In Broadcasting



As in the past, the Excellence in Broadcasting Awards will be a state-wide competition, with stations competing against other stations in similarly sized markets (i.e. small, medium, and large). We also have a separate college division and these radio/television stations will be judged against each other throughout the entire state. There are three separate competitive classifications and stations compete only with others in the same group.

GROUP 1: New York City only

GROUP 2: Albany/Capital District, Buffalo, Long Island, Rochester, and Syracuse

GROUP 3: All others

All entries must have been broadcast by the submitting radio/TV/College station employees (or students) between March 1, 2023, and March 15, 2024.
