WRSU is nominated for four national IBS awards

WRSU’s coverage of this Brett Kavanaugh protest at Brower Commons in October earned it one of three IBS nominations.  Winners will be announced on March 12th at the annual IBS gathering in NYC.

WRSU’s national reputation for outstanding college radio programming has been recognized once again, as the station’s News and Sports departments have picked up four nominations for the 2019 Intercollegiate Broadcasting System awards.  Winners will be announced on Saturday, March 2nd at the 79th annual IBS Convention in New York City.

Assistant News Director Joey Bloch was nominated for Best Newscast for his noon news on October 12th, which featured an in-depth report by Jacob Turchi on a recent immigration panel at Rutgers.

WRSU also picked up a nomination for Best Campus News for Caleb Kubereit’s coverage of an October 5th protest against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, edited for air by News Director Jayne Chacko.

The third nomination came in the Best Football Play-by-Play category, a montage of Sports Director Justin Sontupe’s call of the Rutgers-Illinois game on October 6th, Matt Howe’s play-by-play against Buffalo on September 22nd, and Sam Marsdale’s call of the Scarlet Knights’ Homecoming game against Northwestern on October 20th.

The fourth and final nomination was announced a few days later, where WRSU garnered a nod for Best Music Blog. Check out some samples here.
