PITTSBURG, KANSAS -

When Pittsburg State student broadcasters pack for the annual Kansas Association of Broadcasters awards banquet in Topeka next week, they'll want to leave extra room for all of the awards they'll be bringing home.

The PSU students will receive a dozen first-place awards, seven second-place awards and 11 honorable-mention awards at the annual event. According to Associate Professor Troy Comeau, director of the broadcasting emphasis, it's not only the most awards PSU has won, but also in the most different categories.

“We have really put an emphasis on the idea that students should get a variety of different experiences in the broadcast field,” Comeau said. “This diversity will make our students more marketable in the workplace and being recognized in the various categories really makes me proud of the work our students have done this year.”
