WHTS-FM/Grand Rapids (105.3 HOT FM) has been honored by the Michigan Association of Broadcasters for its morning radio program The Gray and Green Show. The show has picked up two MAB Broadcast Excellence Awards in the Commercial & Network Radio category: Best Morning Show Broadcast Personality or Team and Best Feature/Use of Medium. The show’s hosts are Rachael Gray and Jackie Green.
Bruce Law, Vice President/Market Manager, Cumulus West Michigan, said: “We are thrilled that this dynamic and empowering show has achieved such incredible recognition. Rachael and Jackie connect with our listeners in an incomparable way, and it is gratifying that their talent and particular brand of broadcast magic is resonating far and wide.”
Lori Bennett, Operations Manager, Cumulus West Michigan, and PD 105.3 WHTS-FM, said: “It is unprecedented both in the market and in the state for a team this new to take the MAB’s top honor of ‘best’ and in a remarkably short period of time. The merit award for Best Feature/Use of Medium recognizes their Intersex Awareness Day (Jackie is Intersex and an advocate) is also very timely and sends a message of inclusivity we appreciate as well. People outside the state and market vote on these submissions so there’s no ‘campaigning,’ and that makes it even more special.”
