The Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters hosts and sponsors the annual Outstanding Achievement Awards Program and the Oklahoma Broadcasters Hall of Fame.
Outstanding Achievement in Broadcasting Awards Program
The Outstanding Achievement in Broadcasting Awards Program is an annual competition sponsored by the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters.
The competition encourages the highest standards of reporting, programming, and promotion. It is designed to stimulate a desire for excellence among Oklahoma broadcasters in serving their public.
The 2016 Outstanding Achievement Awards, Personality of the Year, Radio Station of the Year, TV Best of Show, and Community Service Awards will be presented at the annual OAB Awards Banquet on Friday, March 31, 2017, at the Skirvin Hotel in Oklahoma City. Entry forms were mailed to stations on November 16, 2016. You may also download the entry forms here. Deadline for entries is January 12, 2017.
Community Service Awards
The OAB Community Service Awards recognize member radio and television stations for their outstanding community service projects. The purpose of the award is to spotlight the tremendous job the Oklahoma radio and television stations do for their local communities. The program is not a competition, but rather a recognition of the station's overall community service efforts.
Stations may nominate their own projects. Nomination forms are included with the Outstanding Achievement Awards packet each year, or you may click here for a form.
The OAB Hall of Fame Award is the highest honor bestowed upon an individual by the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters. Recipients of the OAB Hall of Fame Award are individuals who have attained a position of national prominence in the industry or its allied fields, or been a major contributor to the growth and welfare of radio and television in Oklahoma or nationally, and been an exemplary steward of broadcasting.
Nominations for the 2017 Hall of Fame are closed. The 2018 nominations are due by November 24th, 2017. Click here for a nomination form.
