iReporter honored by Georgia broadcast society

CNN iReporter (and former intern) James Brierton was honored on Tuesday at the University of Georgia, where he is currently a junior.

The Georgia Association of Broadcasters honored Brierton with the WSB Award, named after the Atlanta radio/television affiliate, at the DiGamma Kappa Banquet. The award, given by the University’s broadcasting society, salutes those committed to community service through radio broadcasting.

Brierton’s work on Smithtownradio.com was a big reason why he received the recognition.

“I founded the station as my high school radio station, and it’s now a privately run venture,” said Brierton. “We've always been focused on training our all-volunteer student staff in the field of broadcasting while also serving our community.”

Brierton added that he also contributes to the campus station, WUOG and Long Island, New York’s WALK, as well as iReport, of course.

Congratulations James!
