Goshen College’s 91.1 The Globe (WGCS) has been nominated for Best College Radio Station in the Nation for the 12th consecutive year by the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System (IBS). Overall, Goshen College students received 19 nominations for the IBS Student Media Awards, which honor the best college radio and television programs in the country. Winners will be announced on March 5, 2022 as part of the 82nd annual conference, held virtually again this year.
“These nominations are a huge accomplishment to each of us individually and as The Globe community,” said Gabriella Klopfenstein, Globe student station manager. “I am proud of my peers and how much they have grown through this experience and I can’t wait to see what is next.”
Thirteen individual students are included in the nominations, with Dante Stanton, a sophomore broadcasting major from Elkhart, Indiana, leading the way with seven nominations, and Amelia Turnbull, a sophomore broadcasting major from Fort Wayne, Indiana, with six. Both are Len Mallioux IBS Student Management Awards nominees.
“When we focus on our abilities and strive for excellence, national finalist nominations will follow. Our students trust the process and it shows. Clever sayings don’t bring success and recognition, hard work and collaboration do,” said Jason Samuel, associate professor of communication and WGCS general manager.
