SUN PRAIRIE MEDIA CENTER Takes 13 Awards at Media Fest

The Sun Prairie Media Center is happy to announce that thirteen original shows created for either KSUN television or 103.5 FM The Sun Community Radio received awards at the fest.

SPMC director Jeff Robbins, who attended the conference and award ceremony, wasn’t surprised by the results. “We have the best community media producers around and I’m pleased that the judges of the Best of the Midwest Media Fest agree.” “In fact,” continued Robbins, “I don’t doubt that SPMC programming would have won even more awards, but unfortunately submitting a program for an award carries a cost and not all of our dozens of producers are interested in paying to enter the competition. Our producers typically do what they do for the love of it and not necessarily to win awards.”

To be eligible for an award, a program must have been produced and/or distributed through the facilities of a community media center and premiered on a cable access channel, community radio station, or its website in 2018.
