Corpus Christi, TX – Local non-commercial FM broadcast station KLUX-HD, has been notified that it has been selected as the recipient of this year’s National Gabriel Award for “Religious Radio Station of the Year”.  The award is given for a station’s ability to uplift and enrich the human spirit with its total programming and community service.  The Gabriel Awards, now in its 51st year, recognizes outstanding messengers of God’s Good News in our media culture.

Entrants go through a highly selective process of preliminary screening and blue ribbon judging.  Blue ribbon juries only present an award in a particular category when a level of excellence is achieved in values, content, creativity, artistic quality, technical quality and impact.

KLUX is in some very good company with other winners such as ABC News, NBC, the Canadian Broadcasting Company, New York Public Radio and the Eternal Word Television Network.  The 51st annual Gabriel Awards Presentation took place at the Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark on Thursday, June 2, 2016.

KLUX 89.5HD – “Good Company”, is in its 31st year of service to the Coastal Bend Community. The station is well known for its “Easy Listening” music format, public service, assistance in promoting the activities of local not for profit organizations, as well as its association with the Local Emergency Planning Committee and city / county Emergency Management offices.
