Ranch Radio KBHB – Sturgis, SD

The Reason Why Ranch Radio was nominated:
Ester Johannesen wrote: They are a local radio station that is directed to the ranching area of South Dakota. Every day they have news from the different towns around the area. They have local people read the news and any activities that are coming up in that town. They also have a birthday club where they announce all birthdays that people have sent them and any anniversaries. We all listen to this station if we want to know what is going on. They are very generous with their time. Not too long ago the Enning Volunteer Fire Department needed $80,000 to fix up their old fire hall. They took three hours on a Saturday morning to help raise money for this project and they hit their goal plus some. As I said before, they are a good station. I know they should win this prize in the state of South Dakota.
