WAER Wins Two New York State Broadcasters Association Awards

WAER has received two awards from the New York State Broadcasters Association in their 55th annual Awards for Excellence in Broadcasting competition. The awards will be presented to the station in September, at the association’s regional award luncheon.

The first award-winning story was produced by WAER News Director Chris Bolt and aired in February 2020 on a Cornell University program that educates children and young adults about the dangers of vaping. The story can be read and listened to on WAER’s website.

The second story was produced by student journalist Gil Gross ’21 and examined efforts by a local sports columnist to urge the University to retire a jersey worn by a female athlete. Overdue: Retire a Woman’s Jersey can be heard on WAER’s SoundCloud page.
