Oswego, NY — For the second year in a row WNYO has won Excellence in Broadcasting awards from the New York State Broadcasters Association.
Last year was our first time submitting to NYSBA’s college radio category and in just two short years we have won five awards. That is an amazing accomplishment that would not have been possible without the contributions of every single member of WNYO, our alumni supporters, and our advisor Dr. David Crider. Without Dr. Crider, we likely would have never submitted awards in the first place.

Outstanding Radio Show
Additionally, we are excited to announce that Sports Director Aaron Valentino and Brandon Ladd, Hosts of WNYO’s Sports Hour, are the winners of NYSBA’s Outstanding Radio Show. Congratulations Aaron and Brandon. You guys truly went above and beyond this year.
This category is defined as, “[The] single best regularly scheduled local show (non-morning) to be judged on flow and quality of overall presentation.”
This Aaron and Brandon had the idea to host a daily sports talk show every weekday night, something that had not been done at WNYO before. This show is a prime example of how hard work. dedication, and raw motivation can lead to great things.
Greetings WNYO listeners! Productions Director Landon Mauricio here. WNYO has survived the 2020-2021 school year that has been plagued by COVID-19, lack of in person classes and more importantly, the lack of in person clubs. During the Fall 2020 semester, restrictions were tight and club involvement not only at WNYO but in all clubs on campus, was low. As a transfer student coming in from a community college, I was […]
