SIX GRAY STATIONS HONORED BY SERVICE TO AMERICA AWARDS

      ATLANTA, April 29, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gray Television, Inc. (“Gray,” “we,” or “our”) (NYSE: GTN) announced today that the National Association of Broadcasters Leadership Foundation chose six Gray Television stations for its coveted 2019 Service to America Awards.  The winning stations included the second consecutive Small Market Winner award for WCTV, Gray’s CBS affiliate in Tallahassee, Florida, as well as five of the competition’s six finalists in the Medium Market and Small Market Categories.  NABEF also selected Raycom Media, which Gray acquired at the beginning of this year, as one of the three finalists in the Service to Community Award, Ownership Group category.  Gray’s winning stations are as follows:

Service to Community Award for Television – Small Market Winner -

WCTV Tallahassee, Florida

Service to Community Award for Television – Medium Market Category Finalists -  

WAFB-TV Baton Rouge, Louisiana

WTOC-TV Savannah, Georgia

KWQC-TV Davenport, Iowa

Service to Community Award for Television – Small Market Category Finalists -  

WECT-TV Wilmington, North Carolina

WJHG-TV Panama City, Florida

      “We are so proud of the exceptional efforts of these six stations,” said Gray Chairman and CEO, Hilton Howell, Jr. “They truly embrace the commitment to public service that is ingrained in each and every member of the Gray family.”

      NABEF recognized WCTV this year for its coverage of a local couple’s relief efforts for their hometown, Jayuya, Puerto Rico, following the devastation of Hurricane Maria.  WCTV traveled to Jayuya as relief workers distributed supplies donated in Tallahassee and documented how residents were struggling to get money for housing repairs. The station sprang into action and helped raise funds, equipment and materials to help provide new roofs.  This prestigious award follows WCTV’s win in the same category last year for its “Peanut Butter and Jelly Jam” food drive.

      “WCTV demonstrates a dedication to service year-round and this is another excellent example of the impact they make,” stated Chris Mossman, Senior Vice President, Local Media.

      The Service to America Awards recognize outstanding public service by local broadcasters. NABEF will honor this year’s winners at the Celebration of Service to America dinner in Washington, D.C. on June 11.
