“Our Town” for Outstanding Public Service by a Local Station





Winner 1946 | WELL Radio

Outstanding Public Service by a Local Station: Never has the American air been so full of controversy; never has the American public been so keen to learn the facts. In its program Our Town, radio station WELL of Battle Creek, Michigan, has stimulated the thinking of a vigorous community. We congratulate the station and its manager, Mr. D.E. Jayne, for presenting both sides of controversy in programs which are provocative, but not preachy; informative, but not dull.
