Norbella Media took top honors in “Best Use of Radio” category for its outstanding work on the Bertucci Share the Love campaign. Greater Media Boston’s five station cluster, including WKLB-FM, WROR-FM, WMJX-FM, WBOS-FM/Radio 92.9 and WBQT-FM/HOT 96.9, were recognized on screen as well thanked on stage during remarks made by Norbella Media Director Bob Deininger during his acceptance speech.
“We could not have won the Media Maven Award for “Best Use of Radio” without the partnership of Greater Media Boston,” said Bob Deininger, media director at Norbella. ”The Pay it Forward concept was developed and supported with the help of Greater Media Boston’s resources, including their on-air talent, video crews, websites, and social channels.”
“This is a perfect example of how Greater Media Boston distinguishes itself from the competition,” said Rob Williams, vice president and market manager. “From concept to development, to collaboration across departments, execution and results, this campaign is an A+. Our agency partner, Norbella agrees, the client Bertucci’s agrees, as did the judges for the prestigious Ad Club Maven Awards. We are very proud of our entire Greater Media Boston team!”
