We freaking love radio.
The texts and social media posts were flying back and forth through the entire staff last night when the news broke that WMMR had been named Rock Station of the Year at the 2018 NAB Marconi Radio Awards in Orlando. It's The Oscars of radio awards.
Our Program Director Bill Weston went down to the event, confident that he would bring home the trophy this time (MMR is like the Susan Lucci of Marconi Awards!) Get ready, his excitement and admiration for this station, this city and rock radio in general jumps through the screen:
Man About Town Bill Weston's stellar acceptance speech on behalf of the radio station.
Thank you to our Beasley Family for capturing and sharing this special moment.
We never could have won this award if it wasn't for you, the listener, for inviting us into your life everyday. So we dedicate this award to you, Philadelphia.
World Champions of Radio!
