2017 NRB Awards Handed out in Orlando

Every year the NRB honors and celebrates outstanding facilities, ministries, programs, producers, and leaders at the NRB International Christian Media Convention. The 2017 NRB Awards were handed out last week in Orlando 

Radio Station of the Year Award, 90.9 KCBI, Dallas-Forth Worth.

Matt Austin of KCBI said, “I would like to dedicate this to the memory of John Grable, a man who convinced me a little over four years ago that something truly special could happen in north Texas through KCBI, and that vision is being realized even today.”

Radio Program of the Year Award, FamilyLife Today, FamilyLife, a Cru ministry.

FamilyLife President Dennis Rainey said, “I know where I’ve come from. If you only knew my grammar growing up as a hillbilly from southwest Missouri. Amazing how God can use people. And I want to say thanks to Bob Lepine for saying, ‘Yes,’ 25 years ago and being the genius behind this broadcast. To God be the glory.”

Bob Lepine, FamilyLife Senior Vice President and emcee of the awards luncheon, said, “It was really the call of God to come and be a part of this. I had no idea what was ahead for me. It’s been a great adventure largely because of the generosity of Dennis in letting me share the microphone with him.”
