KBCO Named NAB Crystal Radio Awards Finalist KBCO/Denver-Boulder has been named a finalist for the NAB Crystal Radio Awards. The awards honor media outlets that have gone above and beyond expectations in serving their local communities.
In 2013 KBCO presented Colorado Rising, a 1st Bank Center concert featuring a performance by Dave Matthews to benefit local flood relief. The event raised $650,000 to support flood victims of the floods that devastated parts of Colorado.
KBCO continues to support the Food Bank of the Rockies and the Boulder County AIDS Project with proceeds from the sale of its 25th Anniversary Studio C CD, a benefit compilation that has raised over $2 million for local nonprofits.
"KBCO supports a wide variety of nonprofits that make the Denver-Boulder metro area a better place to live," said PD Scott Arbough. "We are thrilled to be honored by the NAB as a finalist for the Crystal Radio Awards and will continue to provide opportunities for KBCO listeners to join our efforts to give back."
The NAB Crystal Awards winners will be announced during the Radio luncheon on Tuesday, April 8, T 12:30 P.M. at the Las Vegas Hotel.

"When I left Topspin for Beats just over a year ago, I was inspired by Beats Music’s vision to merge the artist tools with a streaming music service." said Rogers. "I wrote then, 'This is the next step in the evolution of the way fans find the music they love and connect directly with the artists who make it.'"
Rogers continued, "Today Beats Music is excited to announce a deal to acquire Topspin to help us achieve this unique vision. The acquisition brings a team of talented people who have spent years working on building and fine-tuning the artist-to-fan connection into the Beats Music experience. Topspin + Beats Music combines music discovery and direct relationships between artists and fans in a revolutionary way."
Rogers concluded, "A desire to be of value to artists in all facets of their career is in Beats Music’s DNA. We’re committed to establishing Beats Music as a conduit for the artist-fan relationship, a platform where artists have a voice, and a provider of useful data and analytics on how fans interact with artists and their music. This acquisition puts our money where our mouth is."
