Congratulations to the staff of Simmons College Radio for earning two finalist trophies at the 2014 Intercollegiate Broadcasting System Awards!


Simmons College Radio was the recipient of three national awards at this year's 73rd Annual Intercollegiate Broadcasting System (IBS) International Radio & Webcasting Conference in New York City on March 1.

The station was named the winner of "Most Creative Show in College Radio - 2012" - for a special 3-country broadcast done by the students in the Globalization on a Shoestring course. This was a live radio show with the students at our partner school, African University College of Communications (AUCC) in Accra, Ghana and special guest, Andrew Kromah, founder of the Independent Radio Network (IRN) in Sierra Leone.socialmediawithcaption.png

The broadcast combined live streams from all three countries and focused on the impact IRN has had in helping to end the 10-year civil war in Sierra Leone and prevent it from starting again. It provided a powerful lesson on the impact responsible local media can have on a society.

SCR was also named a National Finalist for "Best Use of Social Media" and, for the second year in a row, received the IBS Platinum Microphone Award for Broadcast Excellence.
