WUGA-FM 91.7/97.9 FM, the university’s public radio station, was awarded the GABBY Award for Excellence Aug. 1 in the best locally produced program (non-news/sports) category at the Georgia Association of Broadcasters annual convention.

WUGA’s program, “The Guest List,” won in competition with both commercial and public major market radio stations in Georgia. “The Guest List” is hosted and produced by Chris Shupe, WUGA program director, along with a panel of music commentators including Katie Maifeld, Gabe Vodicka and Andre Gallant. Broadcast on Saturdays at 10 p.m., the program is part of WUGA’s The Rotation series of locally produced music programs, which include “Under the Influence” and “The Sound of Athens.”

WUGA-FM 91.7/ 97.9 FM is operated by UGA through a partnership with the Georgia Public Telecommunications Commission.
