Rob Gregory Community Service Award
Presented to a Christian broadcaster, radio station or associated professional who, during the past year, has shown outstanding effort in community service.
The Joy FM
JOY FM is year-round community-wide champion, inspiring its staff and listeners to create positive long-term relationships and lasting market impact. Among the highlights: thousands of turkeys were collected and given to homeless shelters, women’s centers, and food pantry just in time for Thanksgiving as part of JOY-FM’s T-Shirts for Turkeys. The JOY-FM community also came together to provide 27,000 pairs of shoes to accompany a team of listeners who personally delivered them to children in Honduras. While training for a half marathon, 150 listeners joined JOY-FM’s Team Freedom and raised more than $200,000 for ministries who rescue and restore national and international victims of human trafficking. The station also personally delivered $160,000 in gift cards to victims of the record-setting tornadoes in Oklahoma. And finally, 20,000 JOY FM listeners came together in one event to pack more than two million meals given to hungry children locally and globally.
