WXAV takes home Illinois Broadcasters Association Silverdome Awards

SXU radio station takes first for Best Radio Sports Broadcast

Chicago (Oct. 8, 2007) – Saint Xavier University’s radio station, WXAV 88.3 FM, took first place for Best Radio Broadcast at the Illinois Broadcasters Association Student Silverdome Awards this past week. The winners were Angelo Bonadonna, Kyle Meadows, Nick Jakusz, and Terry Bonadonna.

This is the third time in five years that WXAV has walked away with a first-place IBA trophy. Previously, WXAV won first in the Best Radio Aircheck, Best Radio Newscast, Best Radio Spot, and Best Radio News Story categories. 

WXAV also won two third-place trophies this year—one for Best Radio Spot and the second for Best Radio Longformat.  

"I am extremely proud of the honors our students received this past week from the IBAs,” said Station General Manager Peter Kreten. “I would like to congratulate them for all of their hard work and dedication to WXAV.”
