Peter Christian, the familiar voice on KGVO and KLYQ Montana Morning newscasts, picked up two news awards at the Montana Broadcasters Association - Greater Montana Foundation convention over the weekend.

Peter (who probably has more First Place MBA awards than any other broadcaster in the state) won for Best Newscast for the Montana Morning newscasts and also Best News Story for his work on the initial stories on the UM Sexual Assaults.

Our group of stations in Missoula and Hamilton won an award for a campaign to stop texting while driving. The Blaze's former program director, Angel, won a First Place MBA Award for her work on 96.3 The Blaze.

Both Angel and Peter were at the ceremony in Whitefish this weekend to accept their awards.
