Wisconsin Broadcasters Association

The Awards for Excellence is sponsored annually by the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association to recognize outstanding achievement by member Wisconsin radio and television broadcasters. All entries must have been “on-air” or published during each calendar year. Award markets are sorted by size, and the contest is judged by radio and television peers from outside the state of Wisconsin.  Choose a category below to view winning entry audio and video.
