Kim Komando nominated for this year's Marconi Award!

Kim Komando nominated for this year's Marconi Award!

The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Marconi Radio Awards have been around since 1989, honoring the nation's top talent in radio broadcasting. Past winners of the Network/Syndicated Personality of the Year include names such as Steve Harvey, Rush Limbaugh, Dan Patrick, Ryan Seacrest, Scott Shannon and more.

This year's finalists have just been announced, and guess what? Kim has officially been nominated for this prestigious award!

Four additional radio broadcasters join Kim as nominees for the Network/Syndicated Personality of the Year award. These individuals include Elvis Duran, Raul Molina, Rickey Smiley and Sean Hannity.

Kim is honored to be nominated along with these talented professionals, and to receive this special recognition for the Kim Komando Show. She loves what she does, even after more than two decades in the business. She began this journey with the goal of educating people on a little-known technology called the internet. But back then, she never imagined the scope of what this would become.

Over the years, this mission has expanded with a goal of helping as many people as possible to navigate the ever-changing landscape of our digital world. Through my national radio show, podcasts, newsletters and website, Kim's goal is to share the information you need to make this possible.

Winners of the NAB Marconi Awards will be announced September 7, during the 2017 Radio Show in Austin, Texas.
