Radio Station of the Year

JAM Broadcasting Kerrville/Texas Hill Country

TAB’s judges were inspired by JAM Broadcasting’s commitment to their listeners in Kerrville and the surrounding Texas Hill Country.

Their mission statement is to make the Hill Country a better place overall by providing an excellent Radio listening experience with a community-focused approach – driving results for their clients in an affordable manner.

The stations are dedicated to community service through donations of time, talent and airtime.

The owners and staff take a “servant leader” approach to making a difference – focusing on the needs of others and actively contributing to the betterment of the community.

Owners and staff at JAM are expected to give back to their community individually. Three (3) DJs are Meals on Wheels volunteers, five (5) staff serve on non-profit Boards of Directors, and one (1) has been appointed by the County Judge to the Veterans Service Advisory Counsel.

JAM works with Schreiner University marketing students to teach them real-life learning in media and broadcasting by teaching them how to write ad-copy and produce commercials, then donating $100,000 over the year to run the students' commercials.

The company donates more than $250K per year non-profit organizations and groups such as the City of Kerrville, Kerrville Pets Alive, Headwaters for Heroes and many others.

JAM Management hopes the staff’s commitment to the community will inspire others to think differently, open their eyes and see what THEY can do to help.

"We are incredibly honored to receive this award," said Justin McClure, Owner of JAM Broadcasting.

"This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our entire team, who strive every day to deliver exceptional content to our listeners and service to our community in the Hill Country."

"We believe in the power of Radio to bring people together and make a difference," McClure said.

"This award motivates us to continue pushing the boundaries of what we can achieve and to keep serving our community with the passion and dedication they deserve."
