The New 93Q KKBQ wins Marconi Award Station of the Year

Houston’s Country Music Station: The New 93Q wins prestigious Marconi Award for Station of the Year

Cox Media Group Houston’s station: KKBQ-FM/The New 93Q was named Country Station of the Year at the 2013 National Association of Broadcasters' Marconi Radio Awards.

This is the first time The New 93Q has been bestowed such an honor. The awards were announced Thursday night at the annual NAB Marconi Radio Awards Dinner & Show held during the Radio Show in Orlando, FL.

"This incredible honor is the culmination of hard work by the entire team at The New 93Q,” said CMG Houston Operations Manager Johnny Chiang. “I could not be more proud of the folks whose passion for country music, radio, and our community makes The New 93Q a very special radio station and an incredibly rewarding place to work."

The prestigious awards recognize radio's outstanding personalities and stations. Marconi finalists were selected by a task force of broadcasters, and the winners were voted on by the NAB Marconi Radio Awards Selection Academy. The votes were tabulated by an independent firm.

“I'm extremely proud of the accomplishments by the entire team of 93Q,” said CMG Houston VP and Market Manager Mark Krieschen. “Winning radio's most prestigious award put an exclamation mark on our year!”

The passion KKBQ has for its listeners, talent, community and advertisers is the direct result of The New 93Q reining as Houston’s country music leader and the 1.3M Houstonians who tune in weekly.
