HOUSTON – September 23, 2016 – Cox Media Group Houston’s station: KKBQ-FM/The New 93Q was named 2016 Country Station of the Year at the 2016 National Association of Broadcasters' Marconi Radio Awards. This is 3rd time The New 93Q has received an award as significant as this. The awards were announced Thursday night at the annual NAB Marconi Radio Awards Dinner & Show held during the Radio Show in Nashville, TN.
"Accepting the Marconi on behalf of Cox Media Group and the entire team of KKBQ is truly an honor and privilege," said CMG Houston VP and Market Manager Mark Krieschen. "The nomination and the win are true reflections of the kind of ‘radio’ KKBQ does each day: super-serving our audience, our advertisers, and the local community."
Established in 1989 and named after inventor and Nobel Prize winner Guglielmo Marconi, the NAB Marconi Radio Awards are given to radio stations and outstanding on-air personalities to recognize excellence in radio.
"This incredible honor is a reflection of the fantastic team we have at The New 93Q and the wonderful listeners who support us every single day,” said CMG Houston Operations Manager Johnny Chiang. “I could not be more proud of the passion our folks have for country music, radio, and our community makes The New 93Q a very special radio station and an incredibly rewarding place to work."
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 1.1M Houstonians who tune in weekly.
