Thank you for voting us “Best Radio Station” and “Best Radio Program”
The Austin Chronicle “Best of Austin” awards were announced last week and once again KUT 90.5 was named “Best Radio Station”. This makes KUT one of the all-time winners with 65 wins over the years (second only to all-time winner Barton Springs Pool).
The Chronicle’s “Best of” issue is their biggest issue of the year and a distinct collaborative experience between the Chronicle and readers. In this 32nd annual poll, 22,000 readers cast a quarter of a million votes to determine the 174 “Best of” winners.
Congratulations also to our daily news magazine, “Texas Standard” for being named “Best Radio Program”. The “national daily news show of Texas” has won the accolade every year since 2016 (“Best of Austin” awards were not presented in 2020). Listener Amanda Peres says, “I like the way he tackles Texas politics in an approachable and relatable way.” Tune into “Texas Standard” at 10 a.m. weekdays on KUT 90.5 or wherever you get your podcasts.
Finally, KUTX 98.9’s Laurie Gallardo was named “Best Radio Personality” in the readers’ poll (she won this award for eight years in the Austin Chronicle Music Poll). You can listen to Laurie from 1-5 p.m. weekdays on KUTX 98.9.
Thanks to all the listeners for voting – and supporting – the work of KUT 90.5 and KUTX 98.9! And get out there and support all the 2022 “Best of” winners and nominees!
