Brave New Radio named BEST in the Nation ... AGAIN!

They say winning isn't everything ... but it's all we know how to do! (Okay, sorry for the ego trip, we are just really excited)

On March 3rd, the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System held their 78th Annual International IBS Conference at the Hotel Pennsylvania in New York City. This year, over 1,000 people from all across the country flew to NYC for the conference to learn more about the radio industry and to incorporate these new skills at their respective high school, college, and online radio & television stations. And of course the coveted award ceremony.

We are proud to announce that WPSC-FM (Brave New Radio) came home with FIVE (5) first place trophies, including being named Best College Radio Station in the Nation (with over 10,000 students enrolled) in back-to-back years & for the 4th time in 7 years! (What a feat!)


The other awards we took home are the following:

  • Best Instagram

  • Best Use of Social Media for our Spotify Playlists

  • Best Sports Play by Play in Softball 

  • Best Promotional Poster for our New Found Glory ticket giveaway
