Meet Dan Mitchell, the 2018 Broadcaster of the Year!

Since 1977 the ultimate honor that can be bestowed on a New Hampshire broadcaster is selection as Broadcaster of the Year.  As the photos and videos below indicate, it’s a rather exclusive circle.

Who qualifies?  Usually men and women who have worked in broadcasting for a substantial time, though not necessarily at one station.  Candidates should:

  •    Display an outstanding commitment to his/her job
  •    Show unwavering dedication to the evolution of broadcasting
  •    Breathe life into his/her work by being creative and enthusiastic
  •    Be committed to the community.

The 2019 Granite Mike Awards will be presented on Thursday, October 17 at the Executive Court Banquet Facility, 1199 South Mammoth Road in Manchester.
