Alan Tompkins nominated for IBMA Broadcaster of the Year Award

Alan TompkinsAugust 10, 2020
Alan W. Tompkins, President and founder of the Bluegrass Heritage Foundation, has been nominated, for a fourth time, by the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) for the Bluegrass Broadcaster of the Year Award based on his work on the Bluegrass Heritage Radio Show.  The winner will be announced during the IBMA’s virtual World of Bluegrass to be held in September 2020.

The IBMA Bluegrass Broadcaster of the Year Award recognizes outstanding service to bluegrass music in the field of broadcasting.  Recipients are judged on their contributions to the field of endeavor, professionalism (including their work in their community), and their ability to foster the image of bluegrass music.  Starting with IBMA member recommendations, nominees are chosen by committees of respected musicians and industry leaders.

Alan said that he was “sincerely honored to be nominated again for this prestigious award.  All the nominees are terrific bluegrass broadcasters, and I am proud to be on this list.  I owe thanks to everyone who helps me in making the Bluegrass Heritage Radio Show happen – including the crew at KHYI-FM 95.3 The Range in Dallas and my wife Julie and daughter Jessica Lynn for their support and patience.  As always, I owe a great debt to the folks who listen to KHYI-FM 95.3.”

The Bluegrass Heritage Foundation is a non-profit organization, run by volunteers,
promoting bluegrass music in Texas. While it's free to get in the door to many of our events,
keeping the doors open isn't free. All contributions are greatly appreciated.
