UWO students shine at state broadcasting awards
Radio-TV-film students at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh took home 11 of the 52 student media awards presented by the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association during the organization’s student media conference, winning more awards than any other institution.
A record 162 entries were considered for the competition. Fourteen UW Oshkosh students attended the annual conference March 6 in Middleton, along with Justine Stokes and Randall Davidson, radio-TV-film faculty members.
UW Oshkosh swept the category for long-form, non-news radio production, placing first, second and third. First place went to John Calliari, of Plymouth, for his profile of video gaming culture. Second place went to Colin Bennett, of Greendale, and Stefanie Jacobson, of Neenah, for an episode of their weekly series “A Day in the Life,” and third place went to WRST station manager Jared Bublitz, of Jackson, for a piece he did on the radio station considering a change in its marketing slogan. The Bublitz and Calliari pieces were produced for the Advanced Radio Production class.
