On Saturday night in Big Sky, the annual Montana State Broadcasters Awards banquet was held and what a great evening it was. Some of the best television and radio broadcasters from across the state being recognized for the hard work they put in everyday. Up for the big award of the night was our very own Aaron Traylor from 107.5 Zoo FM in Missoula, the award being 'broadcaster of the year'.

It is my absolutely pleasure to be writing this and announce that Aaron won and was awarded the 2015 Broadcaster of the Year! I couldn't be more proud of him!

Aaron was not the only person from Townsquare Media Missoula to be nominated! Other nominees were Peter Christian and the KGVO news team for their coverage of the Marcus Kaarma trial, which won the award for 'News Story of the Year. Peter was also up for Newscast of the Year. Also Angel Hughes and KC Kloppel were up for Promotion of the Year. It was just a phenomenal night all around, including delicious dinner of steak and salmon.

Being there was an amazing experience I hope to be back for every year, and it just showed me again how lucky I am to work with some of the best broadcasters in the state!
