Congratulations to NRG Media Limited Liability Company KLIN- AM Lincoln, Neb. for becoming a 2015 Crystal Radio Award finalist.

"For any News/Talk station, the first responsibility is to the local community. Here at KLIN-AM, we regard our commitment to public service as a privilege as well as a responsibility because of the bonds forged over generations between this station and our listeners. Everyone on the KLIN team is emotionally vested in the stories we cover, the people we interview and the information we provide 24/7. The traditions, values, struggles and triumphs of everyday life one hears about on KLIN-AM arenít just news about people Ė they are about our neighbors and friends. Itís with this appreciation for those around us that KLIN-AM works every day to demonstrate its ability to help make a positive impact in our community. In 2014, KLIN-AMís staff and its supportive family of listeners rose to the occasion time after time, raising $766,000 for charities. In addition, KLIN-AM furnished 20,000 minutes of public service airtime, and staff contributed 1,500 volunteer hours to causes in the Greater Lincoln area, but our work is never done. We look forward to rolling up our sleeves in 2015 even more for the good of our listeners as we reaffirm our pledge to helping make Lincoln a better place to live."
