Record earns first ever Hmong Association Fellowship Award

Posted:

LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) - From 6 to 8 a.m. every Sunday morning you will hear a different language being spoken on the WIZM-1410 radio station.

That's because the 2-hour program is entirely in Hmong.

Midwest Family Broadcasting Vice President Dick Record received the first ever Hmong Association Fellowship Award May 17.

Record advocated the creation of Hmong radio programming back in 1983, to help the Hmong community stay updated on current music, news, and events.

"Every radio station and television station has a responsibility to operate in the public interest...and these are the kinds of things that I think the audiences and the people and the government are looking for," Record said.

Record hopes the program will continue to encourage diversity and understanding in the La Crosse area.
