Urquhart wins International Award
Felicity Urquhart, presenter of Saturday Night Country on ABC Local Radio, has been announced as the winner of the 2011 Country Music Association (CMA) International Country Broadcaster Award.
The award recognises outstanding achievement by radio broadcasters outside the United States who have made important contributions toward the development of Country Music in their country.
"I am truly shocked by this Award and consider it such an honour," said Urquhart. "Presenting Saturday Night Country nationally every week is a passion and brings me great enjoyment. The support of ABC Local Radio makes Country Music accessible and current from anywhere in Australia. It is wonderful to be part of their programming".
Tony Rasmussen, Manager, Regional Local Radio said "She really has continued on the tradition of Saturday Night Country being the home of country music on ABC Radio across Australia".
Saturday Night Country airs on ABC Local Radio nationally from 10pm every Saturday, as well as on ABC Country (Digital Radio).
