Extra Extra! Read all about it!
The Anchorage Daily News put out their annual reader survey in today’s paper for The Best of Alaska section. And guess what? Just a Girl From Homer won BEST BROADCAST PERSONALITY GOLD! Shannyn Moore was the ONLY Radio Personality to win. Congratulations to television superstars Megan Baldino and Jackie Purcell who were also voted Best Broadcast Personality!
Last year, Shannyn won the Anchorage Press Picks for 2009 as Best Radio Personality/Show category. She was the ONLY AM TALK SHOW HOST TO WIN that award as well. AND, it is worth mentioning, at the time of the Press Picks last year, Shannyn was only on the radio Saturday afternoons from 5pm-7pm! Despite being tucked away on a FOX affiliate at the time, Just a Girl from Homer managed to pull out an award!
Here is what the Anchorage Press had to say last August:
Two years ago you might have said “Shannyn Who?” but this year, Shannyn “Girl from Homer” Moore is in the No. 2 spot for favorite radio personality. (FM Shockjock Palinbots were the number 1 spot-JAGFH Editor). Maybe it shows that raw talent (talking for hours without stopping is a talent, right?) can make up for lack of radio experience, at least if you’ve got something to say. Moore’s popularity is remarkable not just because she’s a relative newbie on the radio dial. She also pushes listeners to the left in a state where the push to the right can sometime feel overwhelming. The votes might also surprise radio listeners because at the moment Moore is a little hard to find (She’s Saturday only, 5 to 7 p.m. on AM 000 XXXX).
Thanks to all of the Anchorage Daily News readers for listening and voting!
