Z107.7 NEWS WINS PRESTIGIOUS “GOLDEN MIKE” AWARD FROM RADIO-TELEVISION NEWS ASSOCIATION

Z107.7 News won top honors from the Broadcast Journalism community in Los Angeles Saturday, winning a “Golden Mike” for best radio news reporting at the 62nd Annual Golden Mike Awards, which salutes excellence in broadcast journalism. The Golden Mike is the broadcast news equivalent to an Oscar. The Radio Television News Association honored Managing Editor Tami Roleff’s story, broken nationally by Z107.7 News, about a Landers man who survived nine days in the open desert last September by using his wits and trash he found. Judges called the story “good story, good detail” and wondered who would play Roleff in the movie. Z107.7 News broadcasts seven newscasts a day, seven days a week with intensive coverage of the desert communities of Yucca Valley, Twentynine Palms, and Joshua Tree. The story was Roleff’s first entry in the prestigious awards and the second “Golden Mike” for Z107.7. Former NBC Nightly News anchor Brokaw received the Broadcast Legend Award and Warren Olney, who hosts two radio interview shows, “Which Way LA” and “To the Point,” received the Lifetime Achievement Award for his 20 years on public news stations, locally and internationally. The ceremony took place at the Universal Hilton Hotel in Universal City.
