ALBANY – North Country Life Flight announced today that it has received a New York state Broadcasters Association’s 2019 Serving New York Award along with 93.3, WSLP.

The state Broadcasters Association recognized North Country Life Flight for its lifesaving work and 93.3, WSLP for promoting and supporting the work of this Adirondack North Country air medical rescue team through the annual Wing Wars event.

“Our Serving New York Awards recognize the extraordinary efforts of New York state’s broadcasters in serving the public interest every day,” the New York State Broadcasters Association said.

“It is an honor to be recognized for 93.3. WSLP’s charitable work in the community, including our long-standing relationship with the lifesaving service, North Country Life Flight,” Jim Williams, vice president and general sales manager at WSLP, said. “Wing Wars is a fun event that would not be possible if it were not for the event’s sponsors, Yuengling and Saratoga Eagle, participating restaurants in the Tri-Lakes and additional media promotion by many of our fellow outlets.”

The New York State Broadcasting Association awards Excellence in Broadcasting and Serving New York awards each year.

“It is an honor for North Country Life Flight, in our 30th year of service, to receive a serving New York Award,” said Mary Jane Connors, president and CEO, North Country Life Flight. “We are appreciative of all the work done by 93,3, WSLP organizing and putting on this regional event, so critically ill and seriously injured patients can benefit from the services of the North Country Life Flight Air Medical Rescue Team.”
