Manassas, VA – 90.9 KCBI will receive the prestigious NRB Major Market Radio Station of the YearAward during the February 26th Radio Reception at the NRB 2011 Convention & Exposition.

“We commend KCBI for this well deserved award and for intentionally ministering to their listeners,” said NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright. “They share the love of God with prisoners and hospitalized children, and they share the Word of God with the Dallas/Fort Worth area. God has used KCBI to answer prayer, save souls, and strengthen the faith of their listeners.”

In their latest Arbitron ratings, the KCBI Morning Show and Afternoon Music Marathon draw the largest weekday audiences by providing distinctive, local, and interactive programming. This strategy’s effectiveness is evidenced by a steady growth in ratings since 2007.
