In an annual tradition, the winners of the prestigious Radio Wayne Awards were presented by Radio Ink Publisher Deborah Parenti at the Radio Show, with Emmis Chairman/CEO Jeff Smulyan taking honors as America’s Best Broadcaster for 2016. The Radio Wayne Awards are named in honor of “Radio Wayne” Cornils, who set a great example for professionalism in radio. A successful small-market radio broadcaster, Cornils also served as executive vice president of the RAB and SVP/Radio at the NAB. The Radio Wayne Awards are presented to the radio superstars whose hard work, dedication, and creativity separate them from the pack. They recognize the people who make the industry work, every single day.
Here are all the winners. Congratulations!
