CMJ Awards

Gary “Turbo” Webb received top honors when he was named best “Specialty Music Director of the Year” while attending this year’s College Music Journal (CMJ) Music Marathon over fall break in New York City. Webb competed against other announcers from stations in Montreal, Quebec; Linesville, PA and South Orange, NJ.

The CMJ Music Marathon is the world’s most important platform for the discovery of new music. Every fall, CMJ invades New York City with over 1,300 artist performances, filling more than 80 of the city’s greatest venues, nightclubs and theaters. Attendees have access to 1,500+ showcases, plus hundreds of panels, seminars, QandAs, nighttime parties, meet and greets, mixers and special events.

Over 120,000 fans, entertainment industry professionals, college radio tastemakers, bloggers, press and musicians come from around the world for the Marathon madness.

KRSC-FM 91.3 Real College Radio was also nominated in two other categories as well. Music Director Garrett Powders was a finalist for “Best Newcomer” and the station itself was nominated for “Most Improved” station. Nominations were submitted by the stations and industry that make up the CMJ radio community.

Congrats Turbo, we are all very proud of you!
