Congratulations to PraizePower 1350 WLOU Radio and the new Praize 104.7 winner of a 2012 Stellar Award today for Medium Market Radio Station of the Year. The Stellar Gospel Music Awards is the first and only annual nationally-televised awards show honoring African American gospel music artists. The 27th Annual Stellar Gospel Music Awards is being held today, January 14th, 2012 at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee.

WLOU Radio is one of the oldest black-formatted radio stations in the nation, serving Louisville, Kentucky and Southern Indiana since 1951. On December 21, 2011, WLOU made history when it launched Praize 104.7, WLOU on FM. WLOU is hosting an Official Launch Celebration tomorrow, January 15th, 6:00 PM at Canaan Christian Church evening featuring Stellar Awarding-winning gospel artist James Fortune & FIYA who is up for Stellar Awards tonight in three categories. It names media pioneers William E. Summers, III and John H. Johnson among former owners.

On receiving the nomination, WLOU/WLLV Radio General Manager Bill Price states, "It is a tremendous honor when you think about the number of gospel radio stations around the country, and you are narrowed down to 16 stations in all categories. It makes you feel proud for the community, and the radio station. It lets you know the hard work that you put in has been well received by others looking into and evaluating the market."
