2019 Cardinal Community Service Award Recipients

The IBA is pleased to recognize more than 70 member TV and radio stations with 2019 Cardinal Community Service Awards.  Every day, Hoosier broadcasters make an impact in the communities they serve through stories, fundraisers, and emergency alerts.

Named after the Indiana state bird – the Cardinal – the awards are a symbol of dedicated service by our membership. This year’s recipients will be recognized during three receptions across the state in August.
