Marquette, MI  –  March 7, 2018  –  Each year we apply for Broadcast Excellence Awards from the Michigan Association of Broadcasters (MABs), and each year, we are fortunate enough to win several awards. This is year is no different!

Some of the Great Lakes Radio crew is down in Lansing for the award ceremony and seminars and having a great time. After sitting in on a seminar at the Lansing Center, Major Discount said radio is still strong in Michigan and a state-of-the-art, active way of engaging communities across Michigan and beyond.

The MABs are a great chance to network with other companies and hear the experiences other businesses have had. Beasley Media Group, LLC spoke about their experiences owning stations in Detroit and Boston. The company reviewed their solid core values: Innovation, Collaboration, Integrity, and Performance.

While down there, The Major couldn’t help but stop in and see our friends at the Spartan Sports Network! Sunny.FM 101.9’s sister stations, WRUP 98.3/92.7 and Fox Sports Marquette 105.1/99.9 carry Spartan sports games and shows to keep the Spartan connection alive in the Upper Peninsula! Chatting with Spartan Sports Network President, Will Tieman and Vice President, Wendy Hart, everyone expects MSU to win the Sweet 16.

MSU broadcast facilities are modern, dominant and organized. Major Discount said he was highly impressed by the organization within the broadcast team and facilities that brings together the MSU we hear and see on-air and online.

Michigan State University is now online 24 hours a day. It’s the only University in the nation that’s on 24/7 with content other than games. On top of games, there is special MSU player and coach content airing daily. MSU is also on an AM Radio station in Lansing with a Morning Show from 7 a.m. till 9 a.m. streamable online. The Nielsen ratings just came out and Spartan Radio Network went from not existent with a 2-hour morning sports shown in Lansing, to the middle of the pack. So MSU is moving forward as Michigan’s biggest University, some 54,000 students, and still one of the greatest teams of all time. Go Spartans.
