Nikki Marra, the professional program director for CWU's campus radio station KCWU-FM 88.1 The 'Burg, received a 2015 New York Festivals International Radio Program Award on Monday at a gala in New York City. Her work was considered among entries from radio stations, networks, and independent producers in 32 countries. 

Marra was recognized with a finalist certificate for her 2014 audio documentary The College Radio Road Trip for which she traveled to college radio stations across the country and interviewed administrators, faculty, and students. The documentary was offered to all college radio stations as part of College Radio Day 2014.

NYF's International Radio Program Awards honor radio programming and promotions in all lengths and formats. This was Marra's first NYF nomination.

The 'Burg was named the 2015 Best College Station in the country by the Intercollegiate Broadcasting System earlier this year.
