Manassas, VA – Tedd Seelye will receive the prestigious NRB Milestone Award posthumouslyduring the March 1st Banquet at the NRB Convention & Exposition.  His daughter, Sutherland, will accept the award in his honor.   

“Announcer, narrator, actor, producer, writer, communications consultant, speaker—all these describe Tedd Seelye,” said NRB President & CEO Dr. Frank Wright. “For him, broadcasting was a powerful tool for the service of Christ’s Kingdom.”

Tedd Seelye began his career in broadcasting in 1954 as a part-time staff announcer for WMBI in Chicago, and started full-time there in 1956. Tedd’s career at WMBI spanned some 20 years. He worked on many programs: The Morning Clock; dramas such as Sailor Sam and Stories of Great Christians; and a listener call-in program, Question, to name just a few. In 1959 Tedd started as the announcer for Songs in the Night and became Radio Director for the program in 1961. His work with Songs spanned more than 40 years. 

Longevity in any field is becoming a rarity, and exemplary service in Christian broadcasting for 50 years—or more—is a feat worthy of recognition and applause. With the Milestone Award, NRB desires to honor the industry pioneers who brought Christian communications to the place of respect and achievement it enjoys today.
