The Prestige Awards is sponsored annually by the Louisiana Association of Broadcasters to recognize outstanding achievements by Louisiana radio and television broadcasters.This competition was established to encourage the highest standards of reporting, community service and production creativity.

Join the Louisiana Association of Broadcasters in celebrating local radio and television stations' successes on March 14th for the 2018 Annual Prestige Awards Luncheon held at the Marriott in Baton Rouge. In addition to the awards luncheon, national speaker, Speed Marriott will be presenting "Embracing Digital Sales" before the awards luncheon. Registration is required to attend either or both of these events.

"As a media seller, you must become an absolute champion of both traditional and digital media. You are no longer just a Radio or TV rep, you are a brand and marketing specialist! So whether you’re selling digital or traditional media, the process of building a brand is the same. Embracing this is your first step toward success."

- Speed Marriott
