CRYSTAL RADIO AWARD PRESENTED TO KNDE-FM
LAS VEGAS -- KNDE-FM College Station, TX 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.
provided this description of its accomplishments in 2011:
the media, writers say music is all about Pandora. But when people need
a hand, they need more than a personalized playlist; they need a local
radio station. We sleep in the same city where we broadcast; we care about
"here." In 2011, KNDE's Candy Cares for Kids Radiothon raised
$136,000 for pediatric care at the local hospital. Our Christmas Angels
project collected 2,200 new toys and warm clothes for 550 local children.
KNDE supported the Junior League and collected 100,000 school supplies
for students that couldn't afford their own. At Halloween, Candy 95 hosted
2,800 kids for free and safe trick-or-treating through a local museum.
But sometimes, help is needed outside the city limits. When Joplin, MO
was devastated by the effects of an EF5 tornado, KNDE broadcast a 16-hour
supply drive to give immediate aid to those rendered homeless. Donations
filled three 26-foot moving trucks with supplies requested from the victims;
from diapers to dog food. KNDE staff drove to Joplin personally. We were
the first to arrive. Beyond special projects, KNDE donated 160 hours of
free station broadcasts and appearances and aired over 3,657 minutes of
public service announcements and interviews that spotlighted local organizations."
