NEW YORK — Goshen College broadcasting students won five national first-place awards from 19 nominations at this year’s Intercollegiate Broadcasting System’s (IBS) Multimedia Conference on March 7 in New York City. The five first-place awards are the most by any college at this year’s competition.

“Our students have a deep appreciation for the culture of excellence that’s been established over the years,” said Jason Samuel, Globe general manager and assistant professor of communication. “They understand that we are judged by the same standards as all other broadcasting programs and that there are no shortcuts to being the best. Winning awards is never easy but it never gets old either. I am grateful for each of them and their talents, and would hold this staff up against any other in the college ranks.”
