WLEN Radio Presented 2023 Celebration of Service to America Award
June 16, 2023
The National Association of Broadcasters Leadership Foundation recently awarded 103.9 WLEN Radio as the 2023 Celebration of Service to America Award winner for Small Market Radio.
The Lenawee County community came together in the summer of 2022 to help the Associated Charities after an arsonist set fire to the building, severely damaging it during ‘the charities’ back to school program.
Through fundraising efforts at WLEN the next two days, over $70,500 was raised in cash and gift cards.
WLEN General Manager Julie Koehn was presented the award by the National Association of Broadcasters Leadership Foundation in Washington D.C. at the Service to America Celebration.
The Celebration of Service to America Awards honors excellence in community service philanthropy and the impact made by local radio and television stations across the country. All stations in every market and broadcast ownership group are encouraged to apply each year.
