93Q's Q Morning Zoo nominated for CMA award

The Q Morning Zoo on The New 93Q gets nod from The Country Music Association

Cox Media Group Houston announced that the Country Music Association (CMA) has nominated The Q Morning Zoo with Tim Tuttle, Kevin Kline and Erica Rico of KKBQ-FM, The New 93Q, as Major Market Personality of the Year.

The Q Morning Zoo shared their thoughts:

"When I was a little girl, I would watch the CMAs just thinking how much I'd love to be on that stage," said Erica Rico. “Even though I can't sing a lick, today we got a call that put me closer to seeing that dream come true."

“What an incredible honor to be nominated not just once but twice! That may be just enough to begin mailing in shows and resting on our laurels,” said Tim Tuttle.

“Serving our community and impacting the lives of our listeners are two responsibilities we take very seriously on The Q Zoo and we're honored and grateful that the CMA recognizes our efforts by nominating us for Major Market Personalities of the Year,” said Kevin Kline.

The CMA Broadcast Awards are among the most prestigious awards given out in Country Radio. The CMA Award winners are chosen in three rounds of voting. Votes are cast by industry professional members of the Country Music Association – meaning Awards winners are honored by their peers in the music industry.

“In my 11 years in Country radio, Tim, Kevin and Erica are the best morning show I’ve worked with,” said CMG Houston Operations Manager Johnny Chiang. “They have become a part Houston, and I am so proud of the recognition the CMA is giving them."

Winners will be announced in October and honored during the 49th Annual CMA Awards on Wednesday, November 4th at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville. The event will be broadcast live on ABC-TV beginning at 7pm.
