This just in from Naperville, Illinois:
WWPT — “Wrecker Radio” — has been voted the best high school radio station in the United States. The announcement was named at the 2011 John Drury Awards, which honor high school radio across the country.
And WWPT took both 1st and 2nd place for broadcast of a radio drama — the “Dracula” show the Staples audio production class did in conjunction with one of David Roth’s acting classes.
But wait — there’s more! Remember Monday’s “06880” post on Wyatt Davis’s radio show? A news piece by Hannah Foley won 2nd place, highlighting “The Wy-Master’s” amazing triumph over muscular dystrophy.
Congratulations to WWPT advisor Mike Zito; to all who participate in Wrecker Radio — and to 2011 graduates DJ Sixsmith and Eric Gallanty, who helped make it all possible.
