The NAB will honor the Washington, DC all-news station with the NAB Crystal Heritage Award. The Heritage Award recognizes radio stations that have won five Crystal Radio Awards for exceptional year-round community service efforts. Only six other stations have received a Heritage Crystal in the 31 years of the Crystal Radio Awards.
The award will be presented during the new We Are Broadcasters Celebration, held Tuesday, April 10 during the 2018 NAB Show in Las Vegas.
“WTOP has served the Washington, DC region for 48 years, and our commitment to the community along the way has never wavered,” said Hubbard Radio DC Senior Regional VP Joel Oxley. “We are so proud of our accomplishments both on and off the air, and are honored that this dedication is being rewarded with a coveted NAB Crystal Heritage Award.”
