TERRE HAUTE - Indiana State University’s student-led radio station was awarded “best college station in the nation” at the recent Intercollegiate Broadcasting System annual conference in New York City. Our partners at The Herald Bulletin report that the station racked up several awards, including best sports interview, best program director, best training manual, best playlist and best college station with more than 10,000 students.
“I’m super excited for them. They were so happy,” Rich Green, the station's general manager, told the publication. It’s the second year in a row the station has been nominated for best radio station. Green was able to bring seven students to the national conference.
