We've heard from several stations who won a Spectrum Award from the
Indiana Broadcasters Association. Had the IBA put a link to the list of
winners (We only see 1999's list there), we'd point our the relevant URL.
In any case, a hearty congrats from IRW to the winners.
That's it for this issue! See you in two weeks...
