"Named after inventor and Nobel Prize winner Guglielmo Marconi, the NAB Marconi Radio Award is among the top honors any station could receive," said Tom Langmyer, Vice President and General Manager for Journal Broadcast Group's Milwaukee Radio Operations. "The award recognizes a station's service to the community and overall excellence in broadcasting."

The station is one of five nominees for "Large Market Station of the Year," the National Association of Broadcasters announced Tuesday.
