KBVR Set to Score Big

radioKBVR radio, 88.7 on your FM dial, has earned bragging rights and cause for a little celebration. By way of multiple award nominations, the student run station has successfully landed on the radar of The Intercollegiate Radio Broadcast System (IBS); an educational association comprised of over a thousand high school and college broadcast stations.

KBVR FM and its talented team of broadcasters, managers and faculty have been nominated by the IBS for excellence in the following categories:

∙ Best Community News: Jodie Davaz

∙ Best Play-by-Play Football Broadcast: Matt Walton and Josh Worden

∙ Most Innovative Radio Program: Joey Hulbert and Zhian Kamvar for Inspiration Dissemination

∙ Best Engineer: Jack Kemp, KBVR-FM and KBVR-TV

∙ Best Production Director: Megan Cummings, KBVR-FM

∙ Best Program Director: Marissa Solini, KBVR-FM

∙ Best Promotion Director: Matt Walton, KBVR-FM

How does it feel to be nominated for an award?

“It came as a pleasant surprise because in years past, to my knowledge, the station hasn’t been really active as far as national recognition goes,” says Matt Walton, an IBS Award Finalist. “I think it speaks a lot to the progress of the KBVR community. This is an award that recognizes all of our volunteer DJs, every last one of them.”

Winners of the IBS Awards will be announced on Saturday, Mar. 8 during the organization’s annual conference in New York City.
