I told you that I was named a Fellow of the SBE this morning. This evening I attended another awards event that had several honorees.
LOI International is a PR and marketing firm that works with companies including Myat and VCI Solutions. The company president, Lauren Darr, wanted to recognize the efforts of people who work for broadcast trade publications. With that, she created the Inky Awards.
(The name is a long story, but some info is posted at the LOI Inky’s site.)
The categories recognize those who work in editorial and sales. I was nominated in the category of Excellent Editor, Radio-US. I was nominated with four other radio publication editors. I was pleased to learn this evening that I won the category. Jim Haupstueck of ERI was there to read the nominees and present the award.
One note from one of my nominators reads, “[He] has applied knowledge of the technical aspects of radio, skills in language, and the ability to convey clear ideas and meaning of a subject to provide useful resource to radio broadcast engineers.”
I proud of that statement because I feel that is one of my strengths, and it captures what I try to do with Radio magazine.
I’ll also congratulate my counterpart and associate at Broadcast Engineering magazine who received the Excellent Editor, Television-US award, Editorial Director Brad Dick.
