WMSC-FM received two national 2019 Intercollegiate Broadcasting System Awards and was a finalist in 11 categories, including Best College Station in the Nation – the third time the station has been among the Top 5 radio stations at colleges with more than 10,000 students in the country.
WMSC General Manager and Advisor Annabella Poland was named the Jeff Tellis Outstanding Advisor of the Year and the station also won for Best Community Outreach Event for its annual toy drive for Roberto Clemente Elementary School in Newark. The 11 finalist honors included Best News Director, Best News Story, Best Political Show and best play-by-play for both baseball and women’s basketball.
Earlier this year, WMSC also received the prestigious Spirit of College Radio Award in recognition of outstanding and spirited efforts made by college radio stations on College Radio Day.
“I am delighted that Montclair State students who work at the campus radio station are being recognized nationally for their work,” Poland says. “Students have the freedom to discover, explore and create at WMSC, and they receive real-time professional feedback.”
