WGTS/Wash DC has received two of radio’s highest broadcast honors this week. As reported on HisAir 11-10-21, In a virtual ceremony on Wednesday the NAB gave awards to the best stations across the country. In August, the NAB narrowed the list down to the top five nominees in each category. WGTS received awards for “Religious Station of the Year,” as well as “Radio Podcast of the Year” for the podcast “We Need to Talk,” hosted by Claude Jennings and Jerry Woods. The podcast addresses issues of race in America and emphasizes bringing people from different backgrounds together.

“WGTS 91.9 has gone through a lot of changes in the last decade. However, one thing that hasn’t changed is the dedication to making our community a better place to live by both the staff and the listening family,” said WGTS president and general manager Kevin Krueger. “During the pandemic, WGTS served as a conduit to bring people together, even if it was virtually.  We recognize that God has blessed us, and many stations like ours, to have a platform to encourage people during challenging times.  It’s an honor to do that every day.”
