Radio-TV-film students from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh made an impressive showing at the student production competition of the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association during the group’s annual student seminar held in Middleton.

UW Oshkosh productions took ten of the 57 awards given. The contest saw winning entries from 13 institutions and judged material in 20 categories.

UWO’s Titan TV swept one category, taking first, second and third for TV Public Affairs programming. First place went to a segment of the series “Explore Oshkosh,” second went to an episode of the program Titan Tonight called “The Lazy Vegan” and third went to the style discussion program “The Look.”

Titan TV also took first and second for Sports Play-by-Play, with a first going to the broadcast of last fall’s Homecoming football game vs. UW-La Crosse and second for a Titan Women’s Volleyball contest against UW-Whitewater.

A first place award in the TV category for non-play-by-play sports programming went to a Titan Football Pregame Show.

Titan TV also took second place awards in both TV Sports Story and TV Promo/PSA/ Commercial and was awarded a third place in the category for Long-form/Non-news programming for an episode of the narrative series “Works in Progress.” Titan TV programming can be seen throughout Oshkosh on Time Warner digital cable channel 10-57.

UWO’s WRST-FM was also honored at the event, with a second place award for best sports play-by-play. The entry was an excerpt of last fall’s UW Oshkosh football match against UW-Whitewater. WRST can be heard at 90.3 on the FM dial in the Oshkosh area and worldwide at

UWO has won 78 Wisconsin Broadcasters Association (WBA) awards since the student production competition was begun in 2004, and this year’s honors were shared among 31 UWO students.

In addition, UWO student Paige Bonanno was one of four scholarship recipients from the WBA Foundation; she was honored with the Howard Gernetzke Scholarship.

Nineteen UWO students attended the WBA event, which included panel discussions and roundtables on a variety of topics, hosted by broadcast professionals and educators. The students were accompanied by RTF instructors Justine Stokes and Randall Davidson.
