When Radio Ink Chairman Eric Rhoads launched the Radio Wayne Awards in 1992, his goal was to recognize the dedicated professionals operating at the station and street levels and give them the praise they richly deserve. And in naming them for “Radio Wayne” Cornils, he established a lasting legacy to a well-loved radio icon.
According to Deborah Parenti, publisher of Radio Ink, “Radio Wayne continues to be about the people who raise the level of professionalism every day in markets across the country; people who get up, show up and serve clients, manage teams, and keep radio stations operating at their best.”
For the 24th year, Radio Ink® is proud to present radio’s symbol of excellence and achievement in sales, marketing, and management: the Radio Wayne™ Awards.
