Feedback from the 62nd NSMA Awards Weekend, June 2022, Winston-Salem, NC:

"I have been attending and bringing my students from Austin Peay State University to the NSMA Weekend since 2012. The event keeps getting bigger and better and more beneficial for my students. I notice a definite change in their work ethic and passion for this business when we return to campus and start the new academic year. Dave Goren and his army of volunteers go out of their way to make this a special occasion for everyone in attendance." -- Barry Gresham, Professor, Austin Peay State University

"I loved Winston-Salem. Now that I've attended this event, I hope I win again and am able to come back." -- Travis Lazarczyk, 2021 Maine Sportswriter of the Year, Portland Press Herald

"I missed the December weekend due to basketball PBP responsibilities. I thought this weekend was one of the best I've ever attended. Hats off to Dave, the committee, and the Monday night participants for a wonderful experience. The policy of not winning two years in a row was a stroke of genius! It enables more casters and writers to experience the weekend, and many will come back." -- Dave Snell. Radio Play-by-Play Broadcaster, Bradley University

"It was a great weekend. My son & I had an amazing time. Tried soaking it all in knowing how much my husband was looking forward to going again. My son said many times how he was enjoying getting to meet so many people & hear their passion for their jobs like his dad had. It's definitely a very very amazing group of gifted people who no matter their level local TV/radio to major markets are just common everyday people! -- Margie Cole, Brookings, SD, widow of 2021 South Dakota Sportscaster of the Year, Dellas Cole

"My first time at this Awards weekend/convention was amazing. I loved getting to connect with industry folks from all over the country and hearing more about their stories. I feel like I left with a dozen new friends." -- AJ McCord, 2021 Oregon Sportscaster of the Year

"Networking is great there, everyone is super approachable. Need to find a way to get more students involved in the convergence sessions." -- J.P. Shadrick, Radio Play-by-Play broadcaster, Jacksonville Jaguars

"Thanks for everything you and your staff did to make my first NSMA experience so enjoyable. Before attending neither knew what to expect nor really valued the honor of being an award winner. The weekend provided great opportunities to reunite with old friends/colleagues, make new friends and appreciate what's best about our business." -- Bob Socci, Radio Play-by-Play Broadcaster, New England Patriots

"Thank you. We loved every minute. Outstanding job." -- Keith Murphy, 2021 Iowa Sportscaster of the Year
