The International Association of Audio Information Service presented annual awards to member stations for excellence in audio programming. Sun Sounds of Arizona took home awards in the categories for entertainment, information, interview/call-in, narrative reading and news digest.

In Touch Networks also won multiple awards in the magazine, newspaper and news digest categories.

Other winners included Houston Taping for the Blind Radio and Kansas Audio-Reader Network, both with two awards; and the Radio Information Service in Pittsburgh; Audio Journal of Worcester, Mass.; and VoicePrint in Toronto.
