He’s no longer in the business, but he’s still raking in the awards.
Bob Mills was named the BC Association of Broadcaster’s Broadcaster of the Year during the annual awards show in Victoria last week.
The veteran broadcaster retired in May after nearly five decades in the industry that included a 12-year stint as a morning show host on Power 104.
According to observers, Mills fought back tears as he addressed the crowd, dedicating the award to the late Kerry Marshall.
A former colleague of Mills and many others, the popular Marshall lost a brief battle with brain cancer and passed away in August.
Another Okanagan media personality left the island with hardware too, as Global Okanagan’s Shelby Thom took home BCAB Broadcast Performer of Tomorrow honours.
And CKNW talk show host Lynda Steele is this year’s Broadcast Performer of the Year.
