APRE Honors LeClair

The Association of Public Radio Engineers has honored Michael LeClair.

The WBUR(FM), Boston CE and editor of Radio World Engineering Extra was nominated by his peers to receive the Seventh Annual APRE Engineering Achievement Award.

The honor is awarded to a single individual for “outstanding contributions” to the art and/or science of radio engineering that have made a “significant impact on, or improvement in” the state of the public radio industry.

Last year’s recipient was Mike Starling, vice president, Technology Research Center & NPR Labs. V-Soft Communications President/CEO Doug Vernier was honored in 2011.

During his acceptance speech, LeClair spoke about how mentoring is important to the radio industry. “Mentoring is taking someone under your wing and helping them. Mentoring is unpaid. It’s saying to someone ‘You can do more and I can help you.’”

The award was presented Friday night at the annual NPR Labs/APRE Engineering Dinner in Las Vegas.

Last year’s recipient was Mike Starling, vice president, Technology Research Center & NPR Labs. V-Soft Communications President/CEO Doug Vernier was honored in 2011.
