The station also collected multiple award nominations. Tony Miller, a senior from Goshen, was nominated in the “sports” category for his play-by-play submission. Ashley Davenport, a sophomore from Plymouth, was selected for her pop culture radio-zine, “Rewind.” In a joint effort promoting the collaboration between Ignition Music Garage and The Globe, Davenport, Kerschhackl, Andrew Witkowski, a senior from Goshen, and 2013 graduate Jimmy Cassoday were finalists in the “special interest and cultural programming” category.
WGCS provides 24-hour programming, including music, news, public affairs and sports. Goshen College students and community volunteers operate the station.
Samuel said that when he looks at the other stations in the IBA categories, he sees respected professionals, which makes The Globe’s accomplishment even more impressive.
“They live for this stuff,” Samuel said. “At Goshen, you have a station that’s a living laboratory and a learning environment. But we also serve the community with a distinct, professional voice. And play music along the way.”
