“Cross-Rhoads” for Outstanding Public Service by a Local Staition
1944 | WIBX Radio
The award goes to Cross-Rhoads, a weekly quarter-hour program over WIBX, Utica, New York, presented by returned overseas veterans of the army now stationed at Rhoads General Hospital in Utica. Each week this program dramatizes a battle experience of one of the Rhoads patients, and in so doing, it enlarges our understanding of the veterans and strengthens the bond between the home front and the men who bear the brunt. All participants, including the announcer, are veterans. The script is written by the Public Relations Special Service at the hospital and is produced with the help of the American Red Cross. Here is one of the pioneers in readjustment.
