Jordan’s "Play 99.6" and Israel’s ’Radio Haifa ’ to receive NAB International Broadcasting Excellence Award
WASHINGTON, DC - Play 99.6 of Jordan and Radio Haifa 107.5 FM of Israel will receive this year’s NAB International Broadcasting Excellence Awards during the International Reception on Wednesday, April 18 at NAB2007 in Las Vegas.
The awards recognize international broadcasters who have demonstrated exceptional leadership and successfully served their audience through innovative broadcasting and outstanding community service.
Play 99.6, Jordan’s number one hit music station, led educational workshops to improve the role radio can play in solving social and community problems. Leading the path in the radio industry, Play 99.6 included broadcasters from the regions of Egypt, Lebanon and Syria. Project Peace, a campaign that aims to draw attention to the horrors of war taking place in the Middle East, collected up to $78,000 toward food and medical supplies for the thousands of suffering families and children throughout the Middle East.
As a local station, Radio Haifa works to promote community involvement and awareness. Their reliable reports during the Second Lebanon War offered continuous accounts of the war to their community and served to ease tensions and save lives during times of crises.
Radio Haifa’s support during the Second Lebanon War reached beyond the airwaves as they mobilized volunteers to provide assistance and supplies for needy civilians throughout the community. When the Bnei Tzion Medical Center Babies Ward was hit by a missile, Radio Haifa initiated and broadcast a fund drive that raised $300,000 for renovation. Establishing programs to raise money for small businesses that collapsed during the war, Radio Haifa succeeded in attracting a benefactor that donated $800,000 that was distributed to numerous small businesses throughout the region.
