88.7 The Bridge (WKNZ-FM) Receives 2017 Best of Delaware Award

88.7 The Bridge (WKNZ-FM) morning show hosts Bill & Denise have won the 2017 Best of Delaware Award in the Best DJ’s Downstate category by Delaware Today magazine.

Each year, Delaware Today identifies companies that its readers believe have achieved exceptional success in their local community and business category.

Bill Sammons and Denise Harper started doing radio together in 1991, and were reunited in 2010 when 88.7 The Bridge was launched, serving Kent and Sussex Counties in Delaware, plus South Jersey and a portion of Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Earlier this year, The Bridge expanded to cover most of the Delmarva Peninsula when it purchased WICO, 92.5 FM in Pocomoke City, MD. A new translator at 94.3 FM in Ocean City, MD is expected to launch in early July.

The Morning Show with Bill and Denise is a positive alternative that focuses on stories that encourage people, according to Sammons. “We try to provide 4 hours of music and talk that produces a calming effect in a world that often feels chaotic”, he said. Harper said “our morning show is never angry or divisive, and we try to provide a positive atmosphere for families. Our goal is to connect and unite people rather than divide them.”

88.7 The Bridge is a former winner of Best Radio Station Downstate, and has won other awards including small market Station of the Year from the Christian Music Broadcasters Association.  The station streams live on its website at 887thebridge.com.

Wise, Weird & Welcome: Learning and Leading with the Lepers and the Locust Eaters

We’ve all read the same books about teamwork, leadership, communication, and culture that everybody reads. We’ve mastered Maxwell, studied Sanborn, Sinek, and Sun Tzu, and liberally cribbed Collins in aborted attempts to go from good to great, but…

How’s that working out for you? 

What if you left St. Louis with an entirely new lens through which to view and act upon improvements in:

Let’s examine how this all connects together, but approach it from an entirely different angle. Don’t just think outside the box. Kick the box to the curb and start at zero.
