MTPR Programs Win Broadcasters' Awards

Jun 17, 2015

Two MTPR programs win "EB" awards from the Montana Broadcasters Association.

"Musician's Spotlight" hosted by John Floridis won Best Radio Non-Commercial Program of the Year for John's interview with Marc Cohn.

"Lets Draw: The Velveteen Rabbit", a "Pea Green Boat" radio play, was awarded runner up for Best Non-Commercial Program of the Year. It was presented by Annie Garde and Mark Metcalf, and produced by Beth Anne Austein.

The “EB Awards” are named in memory of Montana broadcast pioneer Ed Craney. The “EBs” recognize excellence in local news, production, promotion and public service. The awards were presented during the Montana Broadcasters Association convention on Saturday, June 13 in Big Sky. These awards are sponsored through the generosity of the The Greater Montana Foundation which Mr. Craney established to encourage communication, with an emphasis on electronic media, on issues and trends of importance to Montanans.
