Best Specialty Show-“The Screening Room”
The awards are based on the work created during the 2014 school year. “This is a tremendous honor for us to be finalist for these prestigious awards, there are so many great college radio stations and shows around the country, and for us to be selected as finalists really demonstrates the commitment and work everyone at the radio station has put in the last few years,” said former UCCS Radio Manager Brandon Ortega (2012-2014). “The nomination for Best Online College Radio Station really means a lot to us, because a few years ago we were nowhere close to being a competitive station, but the volunteer students and staff all agreed we wanted to become better and we worked together towards a common goal, this award nomination validates that our hard work is paying off and being recognized which is a great feeling.”
