Michigan Radio named Public Radio Station of the Year for sixth consecutive year

The Michigan Association of Broadcasters (MAB) has recognized Michigan Radio as Public Radio Station of the Year for the sixth consecutive year. The recognition was announced Friday morning at the conclusion of the MAB’s Broadcast Excellence Awards Week.

In addition to being named Station of the Year, Michigan Radio also received 12 other awards, including five “Best in Category” awards as well as seven Merit awards in recognition of the station’s reporting, use of new media, community involvement, membership appeals, in addition to other categories.

Michigan Radio received MAB Broadcast Excellence Awards in the following categories:

Merit Awards

Each weekday this past week, the Best and Merit winners have been announced in various categories. In years past, the winners of all categories and Station of the Year were announced at the annual banquet; however, due to the pandemic, the MAB created Awards Week with all awards being presented virtually. 
The Broadcast Excellence Awards program recognizes outstanding achievement in broadcasting by commercial and public television and radio stations in Michigan each year. All 2020 entries aired between January 1 and December 31, 2020. Michigan Radio competes in Group 2 of the Public Radio Broadcast Excellence Award Divisions, which is for stations with more than $2 million budget.
