Syracuse's Newsradio 570 WSYR will have to wait another year to try for one of the coveted NAB Crystal Radio Awards. As we reported last month, WSYR was one of 50 finalists in the entire country, but only 10 stations would win.
During the NAB Crystal Radio Awards luncheon yesterday in Las Vegas, WSYR and the other finalists were recognized for their efforts, but WSYR was not among the 10 winners. (Neither was the only other finalist from New York State, WGY in Albany.) The Crystal Radio Awards recognize stations that perform "an outstanding year-round committment to community service."
