Excellence in Broadcasting Award Winners Announced

As we reported earlier this year, we had a tremendous number of stations that entered NYSBA’s Excellence in Broadcasting Awards this year. The Excellence in Broadcasting Awards is a state-wide competition, with stations competing against other stations in similarly sized markets (i.e., small, medium, and large). The competition includes both broadcasting and digital categories. We also have a separate college division, and these radio/television stations were 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 other markets

The awards will be presented at regional lunches throughout the state. The lunches will be held from 12 noon to 2 PM at the following locations:

  • New York City – Manhatta, 21 Liberty Street| Thursday, September 12th

  • Long Island – Blackstone Steakhouse, 10 Pinelawn Road| Friday, September 13th

  • Buffalo – Aloft Buffalo Downtown, 500 Pearl Street | Monday, September 23rd.

  • Rochester – The Strathallan Hotel, 550 East Avenue| Tuesday, September 24th

  • Syracuse – Embassy Suites by Hilton Syracuse Destiny USA, 311 Hiawatha Blvd.| Wednesday, September 25th

  • Binghamton – DoubleTree Hotel, 225 Water Street| Thursday, September 26th

  • Albany – Wolfert’s Roost Country Club, 120 Van Rensselaer Blvd. | Friday, September 27th

This was a very competitive year. We want to congratulate all of the stations who won this prestigious award.
