The Granite Mikes will begin accepting awards entries on Monday, July 8th!
New Hampshire Association of Broadcasters

Letter from the Editor

As the Old Man said as the entire neighborhood gawked at his “Italian” leg lamp, “it’s a major award.  I won it!”

Traditionally at The Granite Mikes, one broadcaster gets to say this each year as he holds up his or her Broadcaster of the Year Award.  The award often signifies a long career dedicated to outstanding broadcasting in radio or television.

“What about everybody else?”  We asked ourselves.   What about the engineer who trudges through rain, sleet and snow to keep your station on the air every winter?  Or what about the account executive that loosened his tie, rolled up his sleeves and helped his client unload a truck when one of their guys called out sick?  Shouldn’t they get recognized?

Well this year, they will.  Introducing the “Above and Beyond” Award.  This award will be given to one individual who has gone the extra mile in the past year.  From a part-time janitor to the station owner, anyone who works in the broadcasting industry is eligible.  Our nomination form will be on soon.  In the meantime, get a head start and email  to get one.  It’s time to recognize the people that make your station special and our industry great.  Hey, maybe we’ll even give them a giant leg lamp!

Continuing Education Reimbursement Program
Continuing Education Grants are Here for You!

In a world of media consolidation and tightening budgets, training for radio and television station employees is often among the first thing to get cut.  With fewer seminars, outdated training books and technology that evolves quickly, employees can easily be left behind.   Enter the New Hampshire Association of Broadcasters’ Continuing Education Reimbursement Program (CERP).

New this year, the CERP helps any NHAB member get reimbursed for just about any educational endeavor that will help them do their job better.  The NHAB will reimburse up to $250 for members to attend seminars or webinars, purchase training books, cds, dvds, attend workshops, take post secondary classes and more.
