WGTD FM, the area Wisconsin Public Radio and National Public Radio affiliate owned by Gateway Technical College, took home three first-place awards at the recent Wisconsin Broadcasters Association annual banquet.

The ceremony recognizes the best work in Wisconsin media all year. WGTD General Manager Dave Cole said he was proud of the station and staff and that the awards showed the station’s commitment to community service.

“The work that was recognized at the ceremony represents just a few of the great reasons to tune in – or log in – to WGTD,” said Cole.

WGTD won three first-place awards for the following content in the Medium Market Music Radio category:

  • In the Best Original Feature category, WGTD won for Dave McGrath’s Noon Tunes series, in which local musicians are recognized and their work sampled.
  • Noon Tunes promos were also honored for Best Station Promo.
  • The WGTD Radio Theater was recognized for Best Use of Audio (Non-News). The episode that was submitted was titled “Holmes and Watson: It’s Elementary or it’s Moriarty.”
