Red State Talk Radio Awards

Red State Talk Radio Awards

Premo Mondone, proprietor of Red State Talk Radio, which rebroadcasts CRF Radio among a multitude of excellent internet programs, recently announced the winners for 2012’s talk radio awards.


The winner of the “Talk Show of the Year Award is:

The Ruthie Report

Ruthie’s show had the largest average number of listeners per broadcast. It was a close race.  CRF Media was second, followed by Red State Town Hall.

The winner of the “Excellence in Broadcasting” award is:

Freedom’s Wings

Diane Student, host of Freedom's Wings.
Diane Student, host of Freedom’s Wings.

This is the 2nd consecutive win for Diane.  The vote was a tie between
Freedom’s Wings and the Red State Town Hall, both with five votes each.
Since it’s my station, I declare Freedom’s Wings the winner.

Emphasis mine. I’ll readily admit I voted again this year for Diane as she consistently produces high-quality, informative and irreverent broadcasts not one, not two, but three days a week — all while running a successful small business. It’s best to listen live to get the full effect of the always rockin’ chat room occupied mostly by like-minded patriots with an occasional troll or two in the mix. Most of the time though, I catch her rebroadcasts and those of the other Red State hosts via the Red State Talk Radio Listen Live feature.


Regrettably, I don’t thank Premo enough for all of the extraordinary effort he puts in on behalf of his hosts, but it is genuinely appreciated. Being the stand-up guy he is, I’m also not surprised that he’d break the tie between his show and Freedom’s Wings in such a classy way.

And yes, I am thrilled that CRF Radio came in a close second in a contest determined strictly by the number of listeners per show. Thank you to everyone who tunes in consistently, both live and in the archives — we certainly hope you’ll continue to join us throughout 2013!

Congratulations to Ruthie, Red State Town Hall and Diane from Freedom’s Wings for the well-deserved honors!
