WHIZ AM1240, has been nominated again for the Crystal Award which is a community service award for radio stations who contribute to their local communities. One of fifty finalists out of 12,000 commercial radio stations in the country, the station attributes much of its success to the Zanesville Muskingum county community and its members. The National Association of Broadcasters Convention is held the first part of April and it is then that the award will be presented to the winning station. WHIZ AM1240 won its first Crystal Award back in 1990.
