AM1310 The Light’s Amos Brown has been named a Finalist for the Marconi Award. Presented each year by the National Association of Broadcasters, the Marconi Award honors the best Air Personalities and Radio Stations in America. The Marconi Award is the highest honor a radio broadcaster or personality or radio station can receive. The Marconi is the Oscars or Emmys of Radio. Brown was named a Finalist in the category of “Large Markets” which are communities between a half million and two million persons. It’s the second time Hall of Fame broadcaster Brown has been named a Marconi Award Finalist. He previously received that honor in 2008. The host of the weekday Afternoons with Amos, Brown is vying for the Marconi with radio personalities from Cleveland, St. Louis, Cincinnati and Baltimore. AM1310 The Light previously was named Marconi Finalist in 2007 and 2008. This year, AM1310 The Light’s sister station, 106.7 WTLC-FM was also named a Marconi Finalist for Urban Radio Station of the Year. WTLC-FM is competing against two Urban stations in Washington DC, and Urban stations in Miami and Atlanta. WTLC-FM was previously a Marconi Finalist in 2004. The Marconi Award winners will be announced September 19th in Orlando at the annual NAB Radio Show.
