In TV, it’s an Emmy. In movies, an Oscar. In music, a GRAMMY.
And in radio, it’s a Marconi.
Named after Guglielmo Marconi, credited as the inventor of radio, the Marconi awards have been around since 1989. They honor excellence in broadcasting.
We are excited to share with you that Candy 95 has been nominated for a Marconi in 2023 for “CHR Station of the Year”!
“CHR” is our music format, it stands for “Contemporary Hits Radio”, which is a fancy name for Top 40.
We are nominated against four other radio stations. They are located in New York City, San Francisco, Atlanta, and Jacksonville, FL.
There’s no voting or anything like that. A panel will decide and the winners will be announced October 25 in New York City at an awards dinner.
We don’t do what we do for the awards or for the accolades. We do it because one of the principles of having a broadcast license from the FCC is to serve YOU, the public.
In everything we do, we strive to make this a better place to live for our people.
Having said that, it’s certainly nice to be recognized for those efforts by your industry peers. Hopefully, we’ll bring home some hardware in October!
