ITHACA - They did it! Ithaca College's WICB has won mtvU's inaugural "Woodie" award for "Best College Radio Station." Through online voting, WICB beat out three other finalists for the award.
Ithaca College sent out the above photo with a press release earlier this week, when MTV host Kim Stoltz and a crew from the cable network came to campus to surprise the WICB staff with the award.
"This award was obviously a real team effort since there are over 100 people who are involved at the station," said student and Station Manager Josh Giordano. "We have to thank our fans, our listeners, and our alumni for their dedication to the station and for voting for us. Winning the award just confirms that what we do on a daily basis is worth the time and effort."
