"Wineskins" has been awarded the prestigious Gabriel Award in the 52nd Annual Gabriel Award Competition in the category of Local Radio Broadcasts. The Catholic Broadcasters Association created the Gabriel Awards in 1965 to recognize outstanding artistic achievement in a television or radio program or series which entertains and enriches with a true vision of humanity and a true vision of life.  The award itself is a nine-inch silver angel mounted on a polished base of wood.  Gabriel raises skyward a globe encircled by electrons to symbolize the communication of God's word to humanity.  It is a statue to all those who strive for values-centered programming.  The 52nd annual Gabriel Awards will be presented at Laval University in Quebec City, Canada on Thursday, June 22, 2017.  This is the third Gabriel Award for CTNY, the Catholic Telecommunications Network of Youngstown.  Wineskins is an award winning weekly half-hour radio program conceived and produced by CTNY, airing every Sunday over WKBN-AM 570 Youngstown at 7:30 a.m.; WILB-AM 1060 Canton and WILB-FM 89.5 Youngstown at 9:30 a.m. and 9:00 p.m.; and on WSOM-AM 600 Youngstown at 11:00 a.m.  For more information please contact Rev. James Korda, President of CTNY at 330-533-2243.
