Bold Gold Media Recognized with Four NYSBA Serving New York Awards

Monticello, NY – On Wednesday, September 20, 2023 Bold Gold Media was recognized by the New York State Broadcasters Association with four Serving New York Awards.  The Annual “Serving New York" Awards recognizes the extraordinary efforts of New York State’s broadcasters in serving the public interest every day. 

98.3 WSUL was recognized for the 98.3 WSUL Heart-A-Thon, which celebrated its 45th Anniversary in February of this year, and raised over $103,000 for prevention, education, and treatment of heart disease in the Sullivan Catskills.  To date almost $3,000,000 has been raised to fight heart disease locally, as a result of this legacy community event.

WVOS-AM was recognized for its Diamond Anniversary celebrated in September of 2022.  Sullivan County’s first radio station WVOS, known as the Voice of Sullivan, began broadcasting at 1240 AM on September 26, 1947.  Bold Gold commemorated this milestone by working with the Sullivan County Historical Society to create a special WVOS exhibit in the Sullivan County Museum.

Thunder 102 was recognized for the Ciliberto & Friends Saving Friends campaign in partnership with Sullivan County Public Health.  The goal of this campaign was to raise awareness about the local Opioid Epidemic, and the benefits of having people in the community Narcan trained in an effort to save lives.  Over twenty businesses and organizations pledged to host a Narcan training, easily exceeding the 102-participant training goal.

Catskills News Talk 92.5 & 94.9 was recognized for the legacy local talk show Ciliberto & Friends.  This show has provided lighthearted talk and public service, as well as local news and information, for over fifteen years.  Ciliberto & Friends supports countless community organizations and fundraisers. With the growth of the popularity of Ciliberto & Friends, it transitioned to becoming the anchor live morning show as Bold Gold Media launched a brand new talk format in the market called Catskills News Talk, resurrecting Sullivan Counties first radio station 1240 AM. 

“We believe that the fabric of local radio is to support our community, and we are honored to do that every day on all four of our local radio station.  It is icing on the cake, and an incredible honor to be recognized by the New York State Broadcasters Association for this work.” Dawn Ciorciari, General Manager, Bold Gold Media NY.  For Additional Info contact:  Dawn Ciorciari, General Manager, Bold Gold NY, 845-794-9898 ex 102,
