Hubbard’s WTMX-FM Chicago will receive the NAB Crystal Heritage Award, April 19 at NAB Show. Only five others have won the award, which honors stations with five Crystal Radio Awards for exceptional year-round community service. WTMX does more than host the Eric & Kathy radiothon, which has raised $27 million for the Ann & Robert H.
