Rowan Radio 89.7 WGLS-FM received three honors in the 19th Annual Communicator Awards presented by The International Academy of Visual Arts.

The Indie 50, a countdown of the top independent and alternative songs of 2012, won the Communicator Award of Excellence in the Programs category.

Hosted by Allie Volpe, the year-end program celebrated the best of independent and alternative rock music.

Heroin High, a documentary about the drug scene in the South Jersey high schools, grabbed a Communicator Award of Distinction in the Production category.

This is the second award for the 30-minute documentary produced by Joe Mineo, Volpe, and Robert Zettlemoyer in conjunction with WGLS-FM Interim Station Manager Derek Jones’ Radio Production class. The Garden State Journalists Association awarded Heroin High first place in its Best Radio Feature category last month.

The tongue-in-cheek promotional piece about the Mayan calendar was recognized in the Production/Editing category.

The Communicator Awards is an annual international competition that salutes the best in marketing and communications.
