2017 BEST OF AT­LANTA AWARDS

GA Voice - - Georgianews -

Se­ri­ous times have in­spired LGBT At­lantans to fa­vor the as­tute per­spec­tive of pub­lic ra­dio over Top 40 di­vas, as (wabe.org) won a some­what sur­pris­ing vic­tory as best ra­dio sta­tion. WABE has long been a fa­vorite of the com­mu­nity for its in­depth re­port­ing and on-air tal­ent, but real news has never been as im­por­tant now that we’re liv­ing un­der a pres­i­dent who ped­dles al­ter­na­tive re­al­i­ties.

Sec­ond-place fin­isher (www. q100at­lanta.com) re­mains a go-to sta­tion for mu­sic, as does (www.b985.com), which fin­ished third.
