KCBI was honored with the Large Market Radio Station Award for its 2021 Summer of Service efforts – donating more than 13,000 meals along with 9,000 Bibles to community members still struggling with the COVID pandemic. The award also recognized KCBI’s Summer of Service Day, during which more than 225 KCBI staff and volunteers prepped care boxes for mothers facing crisis pregnancies, stuffed backpacks, sorted clothing and prepped nearly 2,000 shoes to be placed on the feet of kids whose parents otherwise couldn’t afford them.
KCBI competed with all Texas stations in the Large Market category – general market and Christian – for the award. The Bonner McLane Public Service Awards are given to six radio and television stations (one from each market size) each year for their exceptional contributions and service to their local communities.
“[KCBI and the other] stations that were recognized for their charitable leadership at the 2022 TAB Show made lasting, life-changing contributions that strengthened their communities,” said TAB President Oscar Rodriguez.
“This award really belongs to the many listeners who demonstrated the love of Jesus by serving the DFW community,” said Sharon Geiger, KCBI’s Assistant General Manager and Outreach Director. “They rolled up their sleeves and did amazing work to advance the Kingdom of God. We are grateful to the Texas Association of Broadcasters for the recognition.”
