HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - Students from WMUL-FM, Marshall University's public radio station, continued a longtime tradition of excellence by winning 92 awards during the 2012-2013 academic year.

 WMUL students surpassed 90 awards for the fourth consecutive year. Twenty-five of the 92 awards were for first place, 37 for second place, three for third place and 27 for honorable mention. Since 1985, WMUL student broadcasters have won 1,335 awards, according to Dr. Chuck G. Bailey, professor of radio-television production and management in the W. Page Pitt School of Journalism and Mass Communications at Marshall, and faculty manager of WMUL-FM.

WMUL finished the year strong with three firsts and 10 seconds in the West Virginia Associated Press Broadcasters Association's 2012 broadcast journalism awards ceremony June 8 at the Charleston Civic Center.

"Overall, this commendable effort helps to build upon another successful year by the volunteer-student staff of WMUL-FM in garnering recognition for Marshall University and the W. Page Pitt School of Journalism and Mass Communications from state, regional and national broadcasting organizations that evaluate the work done at campus radio stations," Bailey said.
