88Nine wins awards from Wisconsin Broadcasters Association

It’s hard to share this news without seeming like we’re bragging. We definitely don’t want to come off that way.

But we’re proud, and want you -- our readers, listeners and supporters -- to hear the good news.


So, here comes the brag ... we won a bunch of awards from the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association this past weekend. We won the most first place awards (six) and most overall awards (13) of all music radio stations in the state.

Above all, we want to thank our Members and Underwriters for your support. We cannot do any of this without you.
