A&O Salutes Some Early CCMA Winners

The Albright & O'Malley consulting team is so proud of our coworker and Assistant Program Director/Music Director at Jim Pattison Broadcast Group's 93.7 JRfm, Mark Patric, who over the weekend was named the Canadian Country Music Association's Major Market Music Director of the Year.

The winning piece of content, as voted on by the attendees at my Friday convention session was submitted by CKRY/Calgary's Odd Squad. Robin Adair and Dan Veranelli were on hand to personally accept the $500 cash prize before also being named Canada's Major Market Personalities of the Year.

Placing #2 in the voting was a great personal story of a practical joke gone wrong by
JRfm 93.7 Vancouver's evening host Roo Phelps.

KKBN/Sorona's Joe and Bridget, CJJR''s Clay and Karen, Crystal Darche and Colleen Troy, WSOC/Charlotte's Catherine Lane, KEEY/Minneapolis' Donna and Muss, KFGY/Santa Rosa's Rob and Joss, CHAT/Medicine Hat's Jim and Amy, WSRG/Sturgeon Bay's Colin Shaughnessey and a crazy stunt from KUPL/Portland's Waking Crew ("Paint Ball Power Ball") rounded out the top ten bits I shared as a part of my presentation.

My CCMA session audience was very impressed by the quality of content! Thanks to all of them for competing for the prize money and "fame."
