Susquehanna University’s radio station, WQSU The Pulse, won yet another award from the Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters. This year the station is recognized with a 2020 Excellence in Broadcasting award for its annual on-air pledge drive.
This competition includes all radio stations in Pennsylvania. WQSU won the award out of 393 entrants. The station, managed by Dawn Benfer, will accept this distinguished award at a luncheon in March in Hershey, Pa.
This accolade follows the four the station received last year from the PAB, including Best College Radio Station Under 10,000 Students, Best Station Facilities, Best On-Air Pledge Drive, and Best Use of Facebook.
Founded in 1967, WQSU is a 10,500-watt station, making it the most powerful student-run college FM radio station in Pennsylvania, serving approximately one-third of the state. In 2013, WQSU began broadcasting in HD.
The Intercollegiate Broadcasting System is a nonprofit organization serving education-affiliated high school, college and community radio/TV stations and streaming/webcasters. The organization annually provides more than 250 seminars across the country.
