Delmarva Public Radio Wins Chesapeake AP Broadcasters Association Awards
SALISBURY, MD---From segments on Delmarva traditions to a little-known local community with a long history, stories told by Delmarva Public Radio (DPR) have earned praise from the Chesapeake Associated Press Broadcasters Association.
DPR (WSCL 89.5 FM and WSDL 90.7 FM) garnered three awards in the non-metro radio category during the association’s annual summer convention in Ocean City, MD. The stations, which broadcast from the Salisbury University campus, have won more than 40 awards in the past decade.
News Director Don Rush earned all three honors. His “An African-American Community Lost in Time,” detailing the history of Salisbury’s Georgetown neighborhood, won Outstanding Enterprise Reporting.
Delmarva Public Radio was selected for these honors from among some 70 radio and television stations in Maryland, Delaware and Washington, D.C. For more information call 410-543-6895 or visit the Delmarva Public Radio website at www.delmarvapublicradio.net.
