LAS VEGAS - KHHT-FM Los Angeles 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.

NAB selected 10 winners from a pool of 50 finalists. Recipients were recognized at today's NAB Radio Luncheon during NAB2007.

KHHT-FM provided this description of its accomplishments in 2006:

"The heart and soul of a community is moved not only by the music their radio station plays, but by its commitment and action in the community. Hot 92 Jamz is 'Your Community. Your Voice.' Words we live by and use to inspire others. Our weekly on-air Community Review program carries that vision by investigating, reporting and inspiring interaction on topics like the foster care system, racism, homelessness, youth services, domestic violence and more. We've interviewed gang members turned teachers and hosted a citywide multicultural Quinceanera for foster children. The heart of our mission is reflected in our community program's closing statement, 'Stay strong, stay focused and most of all stay informed.' In 2006, we continued the 'Hot Community Task Force,' a group of listeners led by our DJs, working together on projects that fulfill a need in the community. Some of our endeavors have included neighborhood clean-ups, painting schools and planting trees. Our goal is to change our community for the better, while empowering our listening audience to work with us… one person, one household, one neighborhood at a time. Our steadfast commitment continues to grow in order to encompass our vision and touch our audience beyond the music."
