FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CRYSTAL RADIO AWARD PRESENTED TO KSTP-FM
VEGAS - KSTP-FM St. Paul 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.
KSTP-FM provided this description of its accomplishments in 2006:
"KSTP-FM/KS95 is a rarity in today's radio world. We have been locally
owned by the same family for 41 years. That local pride shows in a strong
commitment to serving the community. Both the owners and employees of
KS95 are genuinely passionate about helping the Twin Cities. 2006 was
a year of continuing long-standing charitable partnerships as well as
finding new ways to expand our public service efforts. 'KS95 for Kids
Radiothon' raised $889,989 for children battling cancer and physical disabilities.
Our first 'Stuff the Bus' school supply drive raised over 100,000 school
supplies and $15,845 for needy students. Our 11th annual Stuff the Bus
Toy Drive resulted in donations of 10,650 toys valued at $143,775. Over
500 listeners walked with Team Moon and Staci, while 5,000 children registered
for KS95's Kids for the Cure Fun Run to fight breast cancer. Honors received
in 2006 include the Dream Maker Award from Children's Cancer Research
Fund, the Bring Community Service Home Award from the Minnesota Broadcasters
Association as well as being a finalist in the NAB Marconi Radio Awards
for Legendary Station. KS95 is proud to continue a 41-year history of
being locally owned and helping the Twin Cities."
