LEXINGTON, Ky. (Nov. 23, 2004) -- The news department of WUKY (FM 91.3) , a University of Kentucky public radio station, recently won two Communicator Awards in the audio competition. The Communicator Awards is an international awards program founded by communications professionals to recognize excellence in the field.

“Voices from Keeneland” garnered a Crystal Award of Excellence, and “All the Queen’s Horses” won an Award of Distinction. “Horses,” produced by Alan Lytle, WUKY news director, took listeners on a walking tour of the Kentucky Horse Park’s 2003 “All the Queen’s Horses” exhibit. “Voices,” produced by writer/producer/reporter Bill Griffin, dealt with some of the lesser-known employees of Lexington’s landmark race course and their contribution to fans’ enjoyment of racing.

“The WUKY radio news team, led by Alan Lytle, demonstrates its excellence on a daily basis by providing exceptional coverage of the issues that affect the residents of Lexington and Central Kentucky,” said Tom Godell, WUKY general manager. “It is indeed gratifying to learn that this effort has been rewarded with not one but two Communicator Awards.”
