We would like to congratulate Radio Humber Diploma graduating student Josette LaFleur for being this year’s recipient of the Rene Roth Memorial Scholarship – an award given away to a student who demonstrates leadership, innovation, and creativity. Josette majored in News and would have been a favourite of the late Rene Roth- who taught sales and marketing in the Radio Humber Diploma program before losing her battle with cancer three years ago.
Also, congratulations to three Broadcast - Radio professors for winning multiple awards at the 2018 Crystals Awards held on Monday, May 7th.
Kyle Taylor, the Humber Radio Lab professor and Creative Director of Indie 88, picked up three awards for creative production excellence. Creative Production professor, Greg MacDonald of Bell Media, and his creative team won two Crystals Awards for creative excellence. And, finally, Writing for Radio professor, Larry MacInnis, also walked away with two Crystals Awards for creative writing excellence. All in all, it was a big, exciting night for RBD. It just goes to show that our students are being taught by the best in the business.
Congratulations to all on receiving these amazing honours!
