MYFM 101.3/WMRC-FIRST CLASS RADIO RECEIVES TWO PRESTIGIOUS AWARDS FROM MASSACHUSETTS BROADCASTERS ASSOCIATION

Merit Station of the Year and Above and Beyond Award to Ray Auger

MyFM 101.3 announced today that it, and its staff, are the recipients of two prestigious awards from the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association. The radio station, which serves the market between Boston, Worcester, and Providence, received the Station of the Year merit award. Also, station on-air personality and MyFM’s “Mr. Everything,” Ray Auger, was honored with the “Above and Beyond” award.
The Station of the Year award is presented annually by the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association to the most outstanding radio station in the Commonwealth, and is open to all of the more than 180 radio stations in the Commonwealth. The merit “Station of the Year” is awarded to a Massachusetts radio station that exemplifies overall excellence in all phases of operation.
This year’s judges, members of the Alaska Broadcasters Association, cited MyFM 101.3’s extraordinary growth of audience and client base. But most importantly, stating that MyFM was the epitome of localism in broadcasting, and providing exceptional service to their listeners, community officials and local organizations.
Jordan Walton, President of the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association said, "MyFM is a shining example of what a radio station, hyper-focused on their local community, can accomplish.”
This is the 6th time that MyFM 101.3/WMRC-First Class Radio has won Station of the Year.
1993 Radio Station of the Year -- Massachusetts Broadcasters Association
1994 Radio Station of the Year -- Massachusetts Broadcasters Association
1995 Radio Station of the Year -- Massachusetts Broadcasters Association
2012 Radio Station of the Year -- Massachusetts Broadcasters Association
2013 Radio Station of the Year -- Massachusetts Broadcasters Association
2015 Radio Station of the Year -- Massachusetts Broadcasters Association
2017 Merit Radio Station of the Year -- Massachusetts Broadcasters Association

“We are humbled and honored to be recognized again by the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association,” says MyFM President Tom McAuliffe. “I’ve been part of this community for more than 27 years and look forward to serving it for many more.”

The second accolade bestowed upon MyFM, the Above and Beyond award, was granted to My FM’s “Mr. Everything” Ray Auger. The Association noted Auger’s combined involvement in the local music scene and his status at MyFM/WMRC to help deliver new forms of artistic culture and fundraising support to the area. By becoming involved with local organizations, he uses his relationships and broadcasting skills to serve his community in an effective and entertaining fashion. In addition to his regular duties as a radio host, producer and promotions director, and so much more, Auger serves on the board of directors for Milford TV and Milford Performing Arts Center. He also hosted numerous community fundraising events, and weekly and monthly open mics and socials.
Walton added, "Ray Auger is the driving force behind much of the local content that MyFM provides listeners in the Greater Milford area. His tireless efforts to make a difference are why his station is thriving and why he deserved to be named our "Above and Beyond" award winner in 2017."

MyFM 101.3 is the sister station of WMRC-First Class Radio, which is one of the oldest locally owned and operated broadcast stations in Massachusetts. The company was purchased in 1990 by Tom McAuliffe, Sr. who was committed to the philosophy that a strong local radio station makes a strong connection to the community. His son, Tom McAuliffe II, took over as President in 2008 making the radio station the area’s first choice for local news, weather, sports, traffic and community events.
