Gordon Webb, assistant professor in the television-radio department, won an award of excellence in the faculty audio competition at the 2005 Broadcast Education Association (BEA) Festival of Media Arts competition. Webb will be honored at the associationís annual conference in Las Vegas in April.

The Broadcast Education Association is the organization for professors, students, and professionals involved in teaching and research related to radio, television, and electronic media education.

Webb's piece, "Jukebox," was one of a series of humorous promos written to publicize public radio. Each production suggests a bizarre method for funding public radio if it were not for stations' annual "pledge breaks," and in the winning example -- a couple must pay for their public radio listening by placing coins in a "jukebox" device connected to their radio. The complete series of "Pledge Break Alternative" radio promos has been aired on WSKG-FM in Binghamton.

The promos feature Suzannah Berryman, Greg Bostwick and Krista Scott from the Department of Theater Arts and local actor Bob Finley, whose voices were originally recorded as a class project in Webb's audio production class. Then Webb, who wrote the scripts, added music and sound effects to complete the scenarios.
