KPCW Earns Eight Radio Awards For Programming And Promotion

KPCW Radio earned peer recognition at the 2013 Utah Broadcasters Award Ceremony Wednesday, taking home eight 2013 UBEE awards, including Five golds.

All entries submitted to the awards were judged by broadcasting colleagues living outside of Utah. KPCW was ranked against other Utah radio stations in non-metro markets of similar size.

KPCW earned the following awards this year:

In the Best Promotional Campaign category, Jan Williams, Mark Towner Williams and John Burdick took home a gold UBEE award for their “Pledge Drive – The Musical” spots.

In the Best Feature Story or Program category, co-hosts Larry Warren and Doug Wells, and feature host John Wells, won a silver award for the Mountain Money’s show.

Although he was not able to attend the award ceremony himself, KPCW’s General Manager Larry Warren stated that it was no surprise to him that the staff had brought home another armful of gold and silver awards.

Off air, Warren said, “I’m really proud of my staff, both past and present, and I think this is deserved recognition for the high level of work they all do. Congratulations to all of them.”

Monika served as a sales associate in Underwriting and Fundraising for KPCW from 2011 - 2016, but that was after nine years as a volunteer DJ, and most of them as a co-host of the KPCW Classifieds Show. Her background includes everything from running ELIZAS in an immunology lab to waiting tables to writing for newspapers and magazines. Her real passion is creating memes.
