NAB Announces Crystal Radio Finalists

Washington's WHUR to receive Heritage honor

NAB Crystal Radio Award trophy

U.S. radio stations doing great work in community service are being honored by the National Association of Broadcasters.

NAB just released the list of finalists for the 34th annual NAB Crystal Radio Awards. See list at bottom.

The recipients will be announced during an online awards program in April.

NAB will also present Howard University’s WHUR-FM in Washington with the Crystal Heritage Award. This recognizes stations that have won five Crystal Radio Awards for exceptional year-round community service efforts. Nine others have received the Heritage award.

WHUR’s selection means there are now two Heritage recipients in the nation’s capital; WTOP(FM) was chosen in 2018. The 2020 Heritage recipient was KCVM(FM) in Iowa (read our profile).
