Alpha Media EVP Midwest Division, George Pelletier commented on the announcement, “We have great talent in our Missouri markets and are proud to see them recognized for their efforts. Mike Edwards is the consummate broadcaster who will do whatever necessary to be ‘of community service’. His radio stations are key to the people in his coverage area. He expects excellence and he lives it every day.”
“I was surprised and honored by this award. To be recognized by my peers is the highest compliment I have ever received. I could not have survived 47 years in this business without the support of my wife and daughters who made sacrifices so that I could advance my career. It’s gratifying to work for Alpha Media who still believes that radio should be live and local and be dedicated to serving the community,” remarked Edwards.
