Here Are The 2022 NAB Marconi Radio Award Finalists

0

The NAB has unveiled the finalists for the 2022 NAB Marconi Radio Awards, sponsored by Xperi.

The winners will be announced October 19 at the Marconi Radio Awards Dinner held during NAB Show New York. It’s a move from the Radio Show, the now-defunct autumn conference co-produced by the Radio Advertising Bureau and NAB until the pandemic.

Established in 1989 and named after inventor and Nobel Prize winner Guglielmo Marconi, the NAB Marconi Radio Awards are given to radio stations and outstanding on-air personalities to recognize excellence in radio.
