I just can’t stop smiling.
Everyone’s hard work on Glory has always been evident in its market-leading ratings, but to receive accolades like these makes me burst with pride! This is a huge honor for Cumulus of Florence and all our staff, on and off the air. Thank you, Spin Awards!”
Trey Nickelson commented: “To God be the glory! I count it as a blessing to be a part of the amazing WBZF brand in Florence. I want to thank my mother, who’s been behind my career since I can remember.
She took me to and from radio stations to shadow broadcasters at 8 years old, which later opened the door to my radio career.
At 15 years old, I was blessed to go from board operator to Webmaster, to promotions, and ultimately, to programming. I’m forever grateful to Craig Dalla Riva, Matt Scurry, and Kenny Smoov for the opportunity.
