Three winners have been chosen by the Association of Public Radio Engineers for partial scholarships to attend this year’s Public Radio Engineering Conference, which precedes the NAB convention in Las Vegas.
The winners are Eric French, senior broadcast technician, WOSU(FM), Columbus, Ohio; Asa Sourdiffe, engineering associate, Vermont Public Radio; and Brian Sanders, network operations manager, KNAU(FM), Flagstaff, Arizona, part of Arizona Public Radio.
Each will receive registration at the PREC and a ticket to the APRE awards dinner courtesy of APRE and its PREC sponsors, plus a $1,000 stipend for travel expenses courtesy of Harris Corp.
Managers, supervisors, mentors and friends could recommend applicants. Preference was given to those new to the public radio industry because APRE believes those would most benefit from attending the event.
Other PREC sponsors are Axia/Omnia/Telos, Broadcast Electronics, DTS/Neural Audio, ERI, Nautel, NPR Labs and the Public Radio Satellite System.
