Washington - Apr 30, 2014 - The National Association of Broadcasters will accept nominations from NAB member radio stations between May 1 - 31 for the 25th NAB Marconi Radio Awards, which recognize overall excellence in radio broadcasting. Winners will be announced during the NAB Marconi Radio Awards 25th Anniversary Dinner and Show, held September 11 at the Radio Show in Indianapolis.
New this year, general managers may nominate NAB member stations and personalities for a 2014 Marconi Radio Award based on either market size or format. Categories include "Station of the Year by Market Size," "Station of the Year by Format," "Personality of the Year by Market Size," "Spanish Format Personality of the Year" and "Legendary Station." Member stations and syndicators may also submit nominations for "Network/Syndicated Personality of the Year."

Nominations must be submitted online by May 31. Finalists will be announced in July. Guidelines are available to help radio stations build strong entries.
