RTDNA  AWARDS - Awards Description

As the "old" guard broadcasters slowly become the "retired" guard broadcasters and make way for new talent, perhaps it's time to borrow an expression from other veterans "Lest We Forget".

Every year RTDNA members and non-members compete for our coveted awards while forgetting (or not knowing) the people the awards were named after. It wasn't simply a case of "let's put a name on this award". It was recognizing the efforts of those who built the foundation of the broadcasting house.
