Recipient of the George Marti Award for Engineering Excellence will be Errol Coker, KHCB Radio Network. The Associate of the year will be Dan Sessler of equipment supplier RF Specialties.
And Pioneer of the Year will be Bob White, a former radio and TV broadcaster and past chairman of the board of the TAB.
