Audio is changing.

We've witnessed the dominance of AM radio,

the growth of FM...

and the emergence of streaming and podcasts.

But one thing hasn't changed:

the opportunity for talented people

to serve listeners with great content.



Our mission is to help develop the next generation

of innovators in audio through scholarships and mentoring,

and to celebrate those Georgia radio legends 

who've accomplished so much.
