One year after receiving the Marconi Award for Sports Station of the Year, WEEI has been nominated by the National Association of Broadcasters for another Marconi, this time in the Legendary Station category.

WEEI is on a list of five finalists along with Philadelphia’s KYW-AM, Chicago’s WBBM-AM and two Los Angeles stations: KFI-AM and KIIS-FM. The winners will be announced Sept. 10 at the NAB Marconi Radio Awards Dinner & Show in Orlando.

WEEI has won the Marconi for Sports Station of the Year three times (2012, ’08 and ’06). Stations cannot win the award in consecutive years. WEEI also won the Marconi for Large Market Station of the Year in 2006.

Established in 1989 and named after inventor and Nobel Prize winner Guglielmo Marconi, the NAB Marconi Radio Awards are given to radio stations and outstanding on-air personalities to recognize excellence in radio.
