Peach City RadioActive Awards

Peach City Radio annually recognizes the amazing work that our volunteer programmers put into making our community effort spectacular, in the form of our RadioActive Awards.

Nominations are open in several categories to all programmers, hosts and producers at Peach City Radio. In addition, our community partners and volunteers are also recognized for their hard work, time and effort. Awards are adjudicated by members of the community who volunteer their time to listen and provide feedback regarding our nominees.
