SYRACUSE — We continue to track down details about local winners from the New York State Broadcasters Association’s 44th Annual Excellence in Broadcasting awards. Thanks to one of his co-workers, we’ve learned TK99/105 (WTKW/WTKV) morning co-host Dave Coombs is on the list. He won his third “Outstanding Sportcast” award at the ceremony on Monday night.
Coombs won the trophy in a category that includes all large markets outside of New York City — meaning he was up against contenders from places like Buffalo, Rochester and Albany.
Thanks to Dave’s co-worker (who we’re guessing wishes to remain anonymous) for tipping us off about the award. As of yet, the NYSBA hasn’t published a complete list of winners online, so if you or one of your colleagues won an award and we haven’t reported on it — email firstname.lastname@example.org so we can spread the news!
