(PHILADELPHIA, PA) - The GolfTalk Live radio show - and its flagship station WNTP Newstalk 990 in Philadelphia - received the prestigious Excellence in Broadcasting Award from the Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters (PAB), during the association's annual awards luncheon at the Hotel Hershey.
"What a 10th year on-air," show host Tony Leodora said. "Being recognized by your peers in the golf industry is always exciting and humbling. But receiving the highest honor in the category of all radio programming, not just sports, for two years straight means we are continuing to provide the most informative and entertaining radio show for our listeners."
GolfTalk Live has now achieved three International Network of Golf (ING) No. 1 Radio Show awards and two "Judges Merit" awards from PAB since going on-air in 2006.
"Congratulations Tony," exclaims Russ Whitnah, Salem Broadcasting Vice President and General Manager of WNTP. "We knew in the very beginning that GolfTalk Live would be a great show. And now for the second year in a row the PAB Award serves as obvious evidence. We thank host Tony Leodora and his entire GolfTalk team for your partnership."
The GolfTalk Live radio show is the award-winning weekly radio show that has won national awards for eight consecutive years and was named No. 1 Golf Radio Show in America by the International Network of Golf at the PGA Merchandise Show in three of the last eight years.
The show airs 52 weeks a year from 7 to 8 a.m. each Saturday on WNTP 990-AM and on wntp.com.
The show also is syndicated. The first affiliate, added in 2012, was WOND 1400-AM in Atlantic City. It airs there at 3 p.m. every Saturday. It also airs on three ESPN stations in the Lehigh Valley and Pocono Mountains, 1160, 1230 and 1320. The show took another leap forward when it was added to the daily lineup on TheGolfDirector.com.
