FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CRYSTAL RADIO AWARD PRESENTED TO WJJY-FM
VEGAS - WJJY-FM Brainerd, MN 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.
WJJY-FM provided this description of its accomplishments in 2006:
"WJJY-FM is a lens, focusing the spirit and energy of the people
we serve into a dazzling ray of light
a brilliant beam with the
power to accomplish great things
like setting consecutive regional
blood donation records, financially supporting local charities with over
$1 million in funds raised, clothing over 800 underprivileged children
for winter weather, stocking Salvation Army food shelves with 11,000 pounds
of food and funding local child abuse prevention with $88,000 during our
2006 Radiothon. At the same time, WJJY's lens is a magnifying glass, expanding
our listeners' understanding of their world. During WJJY's daily Community
Focus program, listeners learned from 283 community experts
with important implications for their health, safety, education, local
government, environment and a dozen other important components of community
life. And finally, WJJY is a telescope, viewing local, state and national
news events and local weather forecasts 72 times daily for listeners who
depend on WJJY's predictions of Northern Minnesota's sometimes dangerous
weather. WJJY's consistent commitment to community service earned an NAB
Crystal Radio Award finalist designation in 2006 and five others since
1998. Like the Crystal Award itself, WJJY's lens reflects the very best
in free, local over-the-air American radio broadcasting."

The NAB Radio Luncheon, sponsored by ASCAP, featured a keynote address
