MARTIN, Tenn. – The Broadcast Education Association recognized WUTM 90.3 FM “The Hawk,” the University of Tennessee at Martin’s student-run radio station, as one of two honorable mention stations in their “Signature Station of the Year” competition for 2017.
This is the first year WUTM has been recognized in this competition, which awards first place honors and two honorable mentions nationwide. The winners were announced during the organization’s annual conference in Las Vegas, Nev., in conjunction with the National Association of Broadcasters annual convention and trade show.
Collegiate Broadcasters Inc. also recently recognized the work of four current and former WUTM staff members.
Chuck Hammer, Kayla Harmon and Jared Peckenpaugh, all 2016 UT Martin graduates, received first place in the organization’s “best podcast” competition for their work on “The Bench,” a sports talk program.
Julia Ewoldt, a current student from Savannah, won second place in the “best audio public service announcement” category for producing a public service announcement titled “sorority designated drivers program.”
WUTM is the recipient of numerous regional, national and international awards and continues to be the area’s premier college radio station. Station content can be streamed online from anywhere in the world.
