The Country Radio Broadcasters will be honoring Beverlee Brannigan with the 2021 CRB President’s Award. The award will be presented at the Country Radio Hall of Fame Induction Dinner and Awards Ceremony on Oct. 13 at The Westin in Nashville.
Brannigan is a longtime member of the CRB Board and executive committee, and currently serves as an officer of the organization.
Her career includes on-air, programming, the general manager’s chair, and corporate roles with tenures at SummitMedia, Scripps, Journal Broadcast Group and others. Currently Brannigan helps air personalities and content creators connect with their audiences through effective storytelling. She was inducted into the Country Radio Hall of Fame in 2012.
“Few people have impacted CRB, CRS, and country music at the level of Beverlee Branigan. As a highly successful radio professional she has produced great local radio and helped develop the careers of countless country stars,” says CRB/CRS Board President Kurt Johnson. “As an officer of the board of directors she brings wisdom, insight, creativity and conscience to all our dealings at CRB. In short, our entire format is much stronger thanks to Beverlee’s talent and commitment.”
The CRB President’s Award is given to those who have made a significant contribution to the marketing, production, growth, and development of the Country Radio Seminar and the multiple services that the CRB provide. Previous recipients include Sarah Trahern, Mike Dungan, Charlie Morgan, Bob Kingsley, Joe Galante, and Erica Farber, among others.
As previously announced, the Class of 2021 Country Radio Hall of Fame inductees will also be honored at the award ceremony, which include Bob Call, RJ Curtis, Bill Hagy, Norm Schrutt, Heather Froglear, Buzz Jackson, Bob Pickett, and Angie Ward. A special presentation honoring this year’s CRB Artist Career Achievement Award will also be recognized at the event.
