were chosen among 50 finalists.
Recipients were recognized at today's NAB Show Radio Luncheon.
2010, Bowling Green, Kentucky (Home of the Corvette, Fruit of the Loom
and 100.7 SAM) and its residents faced incredible needs. 100.7 WKLX-FM
answered! Demonstrating the power of local radio, SAM-FM led its loyal
listeners in countless events to impact the lives of thousands -sponsoring
over 50 nonprofit organizations and helping raise almost $1 million for
those in need of a helping hand. WKLX's cornerstone event, 'Stuff the
Bus,' was an overwhelming success. By living in a school bus for 99 hours,
morning host Tony Rose and the WKLX team filled a school bus with over
12,000 pounds of school supplies. Donating these supplies to area schools
freed up over $500,000 in school budgets to use on other education opportunities.
The first ever Holiday Bash also proved to be a huge success. This live
concert event and auction, co-organized by SAM-FM, netted over $114,000
in one evening and gave 10 local charities a much needed boost right before
Christmas! WKLX cemented its place as a superior community partner by
motivating listeners to get involved and make a difference for neighbors
in need. In 2010, SAM-FM defined what it means to be a GREAT radio station
in Bowling Green, Kentucky!"
