LAS VEGAS -- WRHI-AM Rock Hill, SC today was awarded the National Association of Broadcasters' Crystal Radio Award. Since 1987, the NAB Crystal Radio Awards have recognized radio stations for their outstanding year-round commitment to community service.

Ten winners were chosen among 50 finalists. Recipients were recognized at today's NAB Show Radio Luncheon.

WRHI-AM provided this description of its accomplishments in 2010:

"If you could select only one word to describe WRHI Radio, that word would be 'community.' It isn't a slogan, it isn't something that we just preach; it is at the heart of our mission statement we practice every day. Since we first signed on in 1944, we have continued our commitment to be the 'Voice of York Country.' Our listeners know that they can depend upon us to focus on local stories that matter most to them. WRHI has also been a constant source of support for local organizations not only by providing air time, but in rolling up our sleeves and helping in planning and sponsorship of the actual events. Many of these community events have become annual traditions in our area, such as 'Toys for Happiness' (25 years), the 'Easter Egg Classic' (29 years), 'Boo-Ha-Ha- Halloween' (28 years), and 'Prom Pledge' (21 years). In addition to the events we promote and sponsor, our staff also lends their time and talent as board and committee members and volunteers with dozens of organizations in York County. Our community knows that when they need media support in York County, they can count on us."

Today's NAB Show Radio Luncheon also featured a presentation of the NAB Crystal Heritage Award to KBHP-FM Bemidji, MN and a review of radio's opportunities in the digital future by Brian Cooley, CNET's senior commentator. Legendary radio personality Gerry House was also inducted into the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame. The luncheon was sponsored by ASCAP.
