Wolf Internet Radio Recognized for Production Achievements – The West Georgian

Wolf Internet Radio recently received numerous awards last year, including the Bret Micheals Spirit of College Radio Day Award with Honorable Mention to BEA’s Dr. Marjorie Yambor Signature Station and three awards at the Intercollegiate Broadcast System Media and Management Awards. .

“The Intercollegiate Broadcast System Media and Management Awards are two different awards,” said Shawn Issac, Managing Director of Wolf Internet Radio. “The Media Awards are all of the on-air work, productions, promotions and more that we do here at the station and the Management Awards are your opportunity to nominate student leaders for outstanding work in their roles. We submit everything in October and the finalists announced in January and the first week of March they announce the winners. “

Wolf Internet Radio was able to submit 77 papers / nominees from student leaders for awards. Student work was then evaluated against several schools who also submitted material for these awards. The Wolf won the award for best TV station promotion, best promotion director and Michel Tucker received the award for best university media advisor.

“The best promotion director award is a student award and the college’s best media advisor award went to Michel Tucker,” Issac said. “So it was both the staff and the students who were able to be nominated and win.”

Wolf Internet Radio also won the Bret Micheals Spirit of College Radio Day Award with Honorable Mention on BEA’s Dr. Marjorie Yambor signature station last December.
“Yes, this is the tenth year or so that Dr Rob Quip at Williams Paterson University was founded to organize an event to show the importance of college radio, as many universities and colleges do not want to fund the collegiate radio, ”Issac said. “They don’t want to specifically fund those who broadcast on FM and AM frequencies because of the cost associated with keeping them where they are. Overall, it was the way to get support from university administration across the county and to show the importance of college radio.

College Radio Day allows individuals to celebrate and support college radio stations around the world. After the first year of International University Radio Day, universities also started to participate. With more and more universities participating over the years, the competition can seem pretty stiff.

“We were able to put together a program where the students were on air all day, and then we had a socially distant alumni reunion,” Issac said. “So the university stations that participated were able to submit to the Spirit of College Radio Day award and basically tell the committee what you did and why it was important to you as a college station. We therefore submitted and were selected from one of ten international university stations.

Wolf Internet Radio faculty and staff are required to devote many hours to creating content for their listeners each semester. Asked about their work ethic and what sets them apart from other radio stations, Issac explains that it’s all about dedication and keeping doing the best they can.
“From the CEO’s perspective, we are building to make our operations and content better than the year before,” Issac said. “We don’t just settle for what we have, but keep looking for more. “
