WEKU receives Kentucky 'Station of the Year' award


WEKU has been awarded Station of the Year by the Kentucky Broadcasters Association.

The station received the award in the radio category at the KBA's annual conference in Owensboro this week.

WEKU Director and General Manager Mike Savage says this award caps an amazing year for the Richmond-based public radio station. "WEKU was awarded three Murrow awards, six KBA Impact awards and now is Station of the Year in Kentucky. This award recognizes the hard work of the WEKU team. I am very proud of their effort."

WEKU was one of two public radio stations to receive an Excellence Award. WFPL's In Conversation won Best Talk Show.

Mike Savage joined WEKU in 2018. He has worked in public radio for nearly 30 years and has managed public radio stations in Georgia, Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky. In his current role as WEKU Director & General Manager, Mike directs station operations, programming, news and fundraising.
