The National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation has revealed the winners for its 6th annual Service to America Awards. Winners will be honored at the Service to America Celebration in Washington on June 14.
The celebration is part of the Service to America Summit and is an event that recognizes outstanding community service by local broadcasters.
"Day in and day out, local broadcasters all over America are serving the public with timely news, information and public interest programming," said NAB President/CEO Eddie Fritts. "This year's award winners have gone above and beyond the call of duty, and deserve special recognition for their outstanding service to community."
