Congratulations to Caryn Mathes and team at WAMU for winning this year's National Association of Broadcasters HD Radio Multicast Award (link: RadioWorld) for the station's Bluegrass Country channel. HD Radio's receivers are still in toddlerhood with many interesting developments ahead, but in the end it will be programming that makes or breaks this technology. WAMU's innovative use of its HD-2 channel, web streaming, and a Reston, VA translator have shown how it can be done.
