KCBI to Receive the 2017 NRB Media Award for Radio Station of the Year

KCBI FM logoWASHINGTON (NRB) – 90.9 KCBI, Dallas-Fort Worth, will receive the 2017 NRB Media Award for Radio Station of the Year on Thursday, March 2, at Proclaim 17, the NRB International Christian Media Convention in Orlando, Florida.

The NRB Media Award for Radio Station of the Year is presented to a radio station that is innovative, locally focused, and that effectively impacts its market through community service, promotions and marketing, outreach, ratings, and/or other means. The emphasis is not on market, numbers, or the size of the budgets. It is on how God has used the station over the last 12 months to make a difference for Christ, whether it is in a small community or across the nation.

KCBI broadcasts “Encouraging Music … Words of Hope” to North Texas through contemporary Christian music and great Bible teaching. 90.9 KCBI communicates the Good News of Jesus’ love and transforming power. This was powerfully demonstrated this summer, as 90.9 offered listeners immediate hope, a spiritual perspective, and comfort on air after a gunman opened fire on police July 7 in downtown Dallas, killing five officers. Listeners also shared hope by encouraging local officers with personal notes via KCBI’s Share Hope cards.

The Radio Station of the Year Award is one of 21 awards that will be presented during Proclaim 17, which takes place February 27-March 2, 2017, at the Orlando World Center Marriott in Orlando. For the complete list of 2017 award recipients, click here.
