Excellence in Broadcasting Awards 2023

On May 5th, the annual PAB Awards for Excellence in Broadcasting was held at the Harrisburg Hilton in downtown Harrisburg. More than 80 award winners were recognized and presented with their award statue. The PAB also honored George Graham (radio) and Joe Snedeker (TV) as the 2023 Broadcasters of the Year.


“We were thrilled to be back in Harrisburg to shine a spotlight on the tireless work done by station staff across the Commonwealth," said Joe Conti, President of the PAB.


The annual event recognizes and celebrates the exceptional work being done by Pennsylvania broadcasters. PAB Awards are presented in a variety of categories for both broadcast radio and television stations. This year, a total of 451 entries were received across 20 different categories, and the entries were judged by the Massachusetts Association of Broadcasters.


The PAB presented 87 awards to 47 different stations and broadcast groups during the annual luncheon. WPXI-TV took home the highest total of awards this year with five. WVIA, WGAL-TV, and WTAE-TV took home four awards each, and WQED, WTAJ-TV, WHP-TV, WLVR/WLVN, WICU, WBRE/WYOU-TV and KDKA-FM each took home three awards.

Broadcast Now! High School Video Contest

Modeled after the award-winning program, "What's So Cool About Manufacturing?" video contest, high school teams are paired with a broadcast station over the course of a school year to create videos promoting broadcasting careers. Using a structured timeline and curriculum guide, students will be exploring the careers within broadcasting as well as the amazing changes that are happening in the industry right now.

With individualized feedback from an Emmy® Award winning producer and a dedicated broadcast station contact, this student led project will allow students to create portfolio quality media, elevate their 21st century skills, and distribute their work to a wide audience.

The inaugural contest was held between four schools and the winners were Indiana County Tech Center & Renda Broadcasting! The students were presented their award at the 2023 Excellence in Broadcasting Awards in Harrisburg. View the videos and get more information about the program here.

NAB's AM Radio Toolkit Now Available

Ongoing reports of certain automakers removing AM radio from their automobiles is of great concern to all of us at NAB and within the radio industry.

We are working with media and policymakers to shine a light on the risk this poses to public safety and have developed tools to allow AM listeners to tell their members of Congress to advocate for AM radio in vehicles.

While NAB leads broadcast advocacy in Washington, D.C., local radio stations have an important role to play in touting the benefits of AM radio. It is important that we remind automakers that more than 80 million Americans depend on AM radio for public safety, weather, traffic, news, community connection, entertainment and more.

We urge you to use these tools to talk about the many benefits of AM radio on your station’s airwaves, online and in direct appeals to listeners.

We encourage PA Broadcasters to stand up for AM radio by contacting Congress on this issue now at this link.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at
