Congratulations to the winners of the Michigan Association of Broadcasters (MAB) Broadcast Excellence Awards.

The MAB Broadcast Excellence Awards is Michigan’s premiere broadcasting competition and awards show. Network, commercial, and public radio and television stations from across the state compete against a standard of excellence in various categories designed to showcase the best materials that Michigan broadcasters have to offer.

WKBD-TV, the CW affiliate in Detroit, received two awards. The Motor City Creative team of Producers Tim Lawlis and Charlie Forbes received first (Charlie Forbes) and second (Tim Lawlis) place in the commercial category for their work on the “Specs Howard School of Media Arts” and “Michigan Renaissance Festival.”

The Creative Services team of Producer Andrew Cotitsas and Senior Videographer Paul Pytlowany won a first place award in the marketing materials and promos category for their work on the campaign “First Forecast Mornings/Bad Combinations.”

“I’m both impressed and proud of the quality of work produced on a daily basis in our Creative Services Department,” says Trey Fabacher, Vice President and General Manager of CBS 62/CW 50. “Congratulations to all our local winners for a job well done.”
