Taste of Country Sister Station WGNA Among 2013 ACM Awards Radio Nominees
This week, country fans learned which artists and songs were nominated for 2013 ACM Awards. Also revealed was which radio station and radio personalities received the honor of nominations for the industry awards. WGNA in Schenectady, N.Y. — a proud affiliate of Taste of Country Nights radio — is one of five stations named for the Radio Station of the Year – Medium Market award.
Taste of Country writer Kevin Richards is the midday personality at WGNA, and along with the Sean and Richie show and the other live and local jocks, is a strong part of the station’s success. WGNA has been up for this award on four separate occasions, most recently in 2009. We’ll be rooting for them in 2013!
