DALLAS (WBAP/KLIF) – For the 2nd consecutive year Cumulus Media Radio Station, WBAP News/Talk 820, is a finalist for the National Association of Broadcaster’s Marconi Radio Award for “Legendary Station of the Year.” The award is given annually for broadcast excellence.
“This is quite an honor,” says WBAP Program Director Kevin Graham. “To be nationally recognized in this category once again is a credit to all those on our team who give their all every day to inform and entertain plus the hard work of the countless others over the last 97 years. And of course this could never happen without the support of our tremendously loyal DFW listeners.”
The 50,000 watt AM News/Talk Radio station serves the Dallas Ft. Worth Area and at night can be heard throughout the Southern, Central, and Midwestern states and Northern Mexico. The WBAP Weather Center, led by Meteorologist Brad Barton, is the official EAS Station for severe weather in the Dallas/FT. Worth Market. The News Department has received numerous awards throughout the years including An Edward R. Murrow Award from the Radio Television News Directors Association, The Dupont Columbia Award and the Award of Excellence from the Headliners Association.
Live and local programming includes The Morning News with Brian Estridge and Hal Jay, the Chris Salcedo Show, Rick Roberts and Chris Krok. The station also carries the shows of legendary hosts Rush Limbaugh and Mark Levin. WBAP is the News/Talk ratings leader in DFW.
WBAP has been on the air since May 2,1922 and is the oldest radio station in Texas. After all these years WBAP continues to be relevant because of its focus on delivering great service to the community.”
The winners will be announced in September at the NAB Marconi Radio Awards Dinner & Show in Dallas
