LAS VEGAS -- WUBE-FM Cincinnati 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 from among 50 finalists. Recipients were recognized at today's NAB
Show Radio Luncheon.

WUBE-FM provided this description of its accomplishments in 2007:

"'To whom much is given, much is required.' John F. Kennedy was not referring to radio when he spoke those words, but WUBE-FM relates to them in that context. Radio is a very powerful voice. It can offend or befriend. WUBE chooses the latter. Whether it's raising a quarter of a million dollars for kids with cancer or donating a small stack of CDs to a local fund-raiser, WUBE realizes it plays a significant part in making this community, this slice of America, this world, a better place to live. There's no better feeling than knowing you've helped a child experience a little Christmas that he or she never dreamed of having. There's no better sight than seeing a grief-stricken family see a ray of hope. There's no better sound than the waves from a radio pulling a community together. Mom always said, 'If you don't have anything good to say, don't say it.' Well, WUBE's mission is to find the good and to keep on saying it. From ownership to management, the challenge is the same: how can we make tomorrow better than today? The means: we've got a voice, we'll go use it!"

The NAB Radio Luncheon, sponsored by ASCAP, featured a keynote address by Robert Pittman, MTV co-founder and former Co-COO of AOL Time Warner. During the luncheon, Larry Lujack, legendary Chicago radio personality, was inducted into the NAB Broadcasting Hall of Fame and WUSL-FM Philadelphia was given the NAB Crystal Heritage Award for long-term commitment to community service.
