Feedback from the 60th NSMA Awards Weekend, June 22-24, 2019, Winston-Salem, NC:

"One of the signature experiences of my sportscasting career thus far. It's not often you get to interact with and learn from many of the nation's most acclaimed sports media professionals in one place, so I really appreciated this opportunity. Thank you for all the work you put into making each event of the weekend a great success."

Great Venue!"

"What a wonderful event put on by the NSMA. The entire weekend was first class. If you are in the sports broadcasting industry, I strongly recommend attending the NSMA Award Weekend. A great time to network and learn from other Sportscasters from across the country. I can't say enough about the wonderful job that Dave Goren and the NSMA staff did. Great event and a great job. I'm already looking forward to next year's NSMA Awards Weekend."
