STARKVILLE, MS (Feb. 15, 2011)—Broadcast Media Group of Starkville won 5 Addy awards- including Best of Show for Broadcast- at the American Advertising Federation Mississippi Delta chapter’s annual awards celebration.

The awards were held Feb 12, in Greenville, and company president Robbie Coblentz was honored as the 2010 “Copywriter of the Year.”

“Glass Half Full,” a :30 TV commercial produced for Cancer Care at the Premier Health Complex, took home gold in the Local TV category. The complete two commercial campaign won a gold in the Campaign category and was also named as Best of Show – Broadcast.

The company also won a local TV gold Addy for the “Pick Peppers” commercial for West Point-based Quest Group and their client, Eat With Us Group.

The 2010 Super Bulldog Weekend commercial produced for Mississippi State University was awarded a bronze Addy in the Local TV category.  A promotional spot produced for the Clinton Public School system also garnered a bronze Addy in the same category.

“Winning an Addy is always an honor. Being honored with ‘Best of Show’ and ‘Copywriter of the Year’ is hard to describe,” Coblentz said.

Jean-Marie Carroll, Marketing Director of Premier Health Group, shared the award as the club’s “Copywriters of the Year” for their work on the Cancer Care spots.

“We are truly honored to be given these awards by our peers in the marketing and advertising industry. It really means a lot to receive such a high commendation for our work,” said Carroll.

“Through the creativity and vision of Broadcast Media Group, we were able to develop television commercials that depict the advanced services and caring staff that are now available at Cancer Care in Starkville. We could not be more pleased that others in the advertising industry were able to see the incredible partnership that we have with Broadcast Media Group, and to recognize the remarkable talents of the staff,” she said.

The entries continue onto the regional competition which will be held later this spring.
