WUKY Radio Earns Five Kentucky Associated Press Awards

Published: Apr 11, 2013

LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 11, 2013) ― WUKY, the University of Kentucky's NPR station, captured five awards in the 2013 Kentucky Associated Press statewide news competition among its radio and television members.  The AP Broadcast Awards were announced at the annual banquet Saturday, April 6, at the Galt House in Louisville. 

 

For the second year in a row WUKY News Director Alan Lytle received the award for Best Radio Anchor.  Lytle was competing against commercial and noncommercial stations in that category.  Reporter Brenna Angel took home four additional awards with first place honors in Best Use of Sound for “Personality at the Plate,” feature story on personal walk-up music played during Lexington Legends baseball games, and Best Spot News for “Kentucky Political Figure Gatewood Galbraith Dead at 64.” She placed second in the Best Sports Feature and Best Enterprise categories.

 

"These awards will come as no surprise to regular WUKY listeners who are well aware of the depth and quality of the news coverage that they hear every day on 91.3 FM or read at wuky.org," said Tom Godell, WUKY station manager.  "WUKY faced stiff — and often far better funded — competition in all these categories. Moreover we were the only professional radio station in Lexington, either commercial or noncommercial, to be rewarded by the Associated Press. Hearty congratulations to Alan, Brenna, and all the members of the WUKY news team!"
