AURN to honor Cumulus honchos


Lew and John Dickey of Cumulus Communications are being honored with Urban Knight Awards by American Urban Radio Networks. The award honors individuals in the radio business who effectively market to African-American consumers. AURN’s Jerry Lopes commented, “I’ve been in this business for four decades and for as long as I can remember the Dickey family has been committed to marketing the Black consumer marketplace. They’ve always had a significant number of urban stations in their radio portfolio and those stations have stood the test of time effectively serving African Americans in small and medium sized markets throughout this country.” The awards will be given 9/29/10 during evening #1 of the NAB/RAB Radio Show 2010 in Washington DC.
