KGVO and KLYQ are happy to announce that the 2011 Radio Newscast of the Year was awarded to Peter Christian at the recent Montana Broadcasters Association convention.
Peter was one of two winners from our Missoula and Hamilton stations this year. Shawn Whitney won for best Commercial of the year.
Peter is the weekday host of Montana Morning - our look at local news, weather, sports and more Mondays through Fridays from 6am to 8:30am. He and Bill Schwanke started the current version of the program early this century (sounds old, doesn't it?). The program has also been under the direction of Pete Deneault and our current news and program director Jannette McDonald.
Peter won the EB Craney award Saturday evening in ceremonies at Big Sky, MT. He'll add the trophy to his previous MBA awards.
Congratulations, Peter!
