Cal State San Bernardino’s Coyote Radio students snagged top honors at the National Golden Mic Awards in New York City for the program, “My Awesome Empire” syndicated radio show.
The Intercollegiate Broadcast System announced the winners of the National Golden Mic Awards for excellence in broadcasting at its 2014 convention on March 8. Coyote Radio and students Vincent Ledesma, Mindi McNeil and Janet Moses, who are all now graduates, won top honors in the “Best Public Affairs Program” category.
In addition, Coyote Radio station also won the “Peer-to-Peer Platinum Award” for professional, efficient and effective service as a campus broadcast outlet.
