MYFM 101.3/WMRC-First Class Radio Receives Two Prestigious Awards From Massachusetts Broadcasters Association

MyFM 101.3 announced today that it, and its staff, are the recipients of two prestigious awards from the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association. The radio station, which serves the market between Boston, Worcester, and Providence, received the Station of the Year merit award. Also, station on-air personality and MyFM's "Mr. Everything," Ray Auger, was honored with the "Above and Beyond" award.

The Station of the Year award is presented annually by the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association to the most outstanding radio station in the Commonwealth, and is open to all of the more than 180 radio stations in the Commonwealth. The merit "Station of the Year" is awarded to a Massachusetts radio station that exemplifies overall excellence in all phases of operation.

This year's judges, members of the Alaska Broadcasters Association, cited MyFM 101.3's extraordinary growth of audience and client base. But most importantly, stating that MyFM was the epitome of localism in broadcasting, and providing exceptional service to their listeners, community officials and local organizations.

Jordan Walton, President of the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association said, "MyFM is a shining example of what a radio station, hyper-focused on their local community, can accomplish."

This is the 6th time that MyFM 101.3/WMRC-First Class Radio has won Station of the Year.

"We are humbled and honored to be recognized again by the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association," says MyFM President Tom McAuliffe. "I've been part of this community for more than 27 years and look forward to serving it for many more."

The second accolade bestowed upon MyFM, the Above and Beyond award, was granted to My FM's "Mr. Everything" Ray Auger. The Association noted Auger's combined involvement in the local music scene and his status at MyFM/WMRC to help deliver new forms of artistic culture and fundraising support to the area. By becoming involved with local organizations, he uses his relationships and broadcasting skills to serve his community in an effective and entertaining fashion. In addition to his regular duties as a radio host, producer and promotions director, and so much more, Auger serves on the board of directors for Milford TV and Milford Performing Arts Center. He also hosted numerous community fundraising events, and weekly and monthly open mics and socials.

Walton added, "Ray Auger is the driving force behind much of the local content that MyFM provides listeners in the Greater Milford area. His tireless efforts to make a difference are why his station is thriving and why he deserved to be named our "Above and Beyond" award winner in 2017."

MyFM 101.3 is the sister station of WMRC-First Class Radio, which is one of the oldest locally owned and operated broadcast stations in Massachusetts. The company was purchased in 1990 by Tom McAuliffe, Sr. who was committed to the philosophy that a strong local radio station makes a strong connection to the community. His son, Tom McAuliffe II, took over as President in 2008 making the radio station the area's first choice for local news, weather, sports, traffic and community events.

MyFM's Stuff-a-Bus - Dec 2-3

On Saturday, December 2nd at 6 AM right through Sunday, December 3rd at 12 PM, MyFM Media will be setting up camp outside of Target on Fortune Boulevard in Milford for their first annual Stuff-a-Bus event collecting toys for Toys For Tots. 

"Folks are invited to visit us on location, right outside of Target with an unwrapped toy donation for Toys For Tots", explains MyFM's "Mr. Everything" Ray Auger. "The idea is to fill a Vendetti Bus in that 30-hour period. It's a aggressive goal but I know the kind of people we are working with in this community and I know it can be done."

The idea came to Auger from past Stuff-a-Bus events he was involved with working on radio station on Cape Cod and Portsmouth, NH. Target was quick to agree to help with the location and Vendetti Bus, a good friend of MyFM, was happy to lend them the bus. In case of exceeding their goal, the MyFM and Asphalt Engineering Station Wagon will also be on hand for additional storage of toys.

"We are very excited to add this event to our myriad of community outreach programs at MyFM Media," says MyFM Media President Tom McAuliffe. "Our local community supports us in so many wonderful ways, so giving back like this is never a question."

Can't make it to the event or want to give a little more? "We are offering a fun incentive for anyone who would like to donate $200 to the Stuff-a-Bus efforts", Auger adds. "We will broadcast a Facebook Live Shopping Spree in your honor to thank you for your generous donation. Anyone interested should contact me at your convenience."

If you would like more information about MyFM's Stuff-a-Bus, please contact Ray Auger at 617-851-7542 or
