Goldies are awarded annually to broadcasters for excellence in production, reporting, promotions and entertainment. The annual awards are Alaska's equivalent of the "Emmy" or "Oscar" awards.
KFMJ received one of the "Goldie" awards for a series of radio commercials written and produced by production manager Vicki Muzik. The commercials, entitled "Great Chefs of the World", were produced for West Coast Cape Fox Lodge and highlighted the hotel's restaurant. The commercials were written and produced by Muzik and were voiced by KFMJ's Julie Slanaker, Stuart Whyte, and Chef Tim Frank.
The other "Goldie" was for a public service announcement KFMJ produced in conjunction with Alaskans For Drug-Free Youth and Ketchikan General Hospital. The anti-drug spot was called "I Have A Dream", and was written and voiced by teen volunteers from ADFY and produced by Vicki Muzik.
"We always strive to produce the highest quality on-air material for our clients and listeners, but we're very pleased and excited that our work has been recognized by our peers as some of the best produced in the entire state," Muzik said.
The award entries are judged by an independent panel of broadcast professionals from around the country.
KFMJ is owned and operated by Ketchikan company TLP Communications, Inc.
