The WOLF Internet Radio at the University of West Georgia is a five-time finalist for the 2015 Intercollegiate Broadcasting System Golden and Silver Microphone Awards of Excellence in radio, television, and webcasting. The station is a finalist in the following categories: best promo series, best celebrity/artist interview, best blog, best use of social media, and best online college station.

Group of students working at the WOLF Internet Radio station“Words pale in comparison to the epic pride I feel towards all of the students at The WOLF,” said Operations Manager Shawn Isaacs. “They sink all they can into this station, and it feels good to see us get recognized.”

The WOLF is guaranteed to leave the awards with at least a silver microphone award and perhaps a golden microphone award. IBS received four times the number of entries from last year making the competition even more stiff. However, due to The WOLF’s dedicated and hard-working staff they are among the top 10% of all submissions received.

The 75th Annual IBS International Conference will take place in New York City on March 6-8, 2015, and the awards ceremony will take place on the 18th floor grand ballroom of the Hotel Penn on Saturday, March 7 in the afternoon. All winners will be revealed at the ceremony. The conference allows students an opportunity to show off their accomplishments, awards, and skills and learn from others in the field including industry professionals, faculty/staff and student managers. Registration is now open.

Dr. Brad Yates founded the WOLF Internet Radio in 2009 through a technology fee grant. The WOLF made its debut on April 21, 2010 and has strived to provide quality radio to students, UWG alumni, and the UWG community throughout the years.
