Congratulations to one of our own – You hear him every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on WGNA-F.M., as he counts down the biggest country hits in the U.S., on “Bob Kingsley’s Country Top 40.”

Of course I mean the man himself, Bob Kingsley. Bob has received the 2011 “Tony Snow Award”, Wounded Warrior Project (WWP). It was presented at a special awards and benefit dinner in New York City on March 31.

Besides letting us know about current country music every week, he works extremely hard to support of military veterans including work for WWP, Disabled American Veterans and the Department of Veterans Affairs. Bob stated that “I consider it an honor simply to be associated with the Wounded Warrior program. My contributions pale in comparison to the sacrifices of the men and women it serves. I am greatly humbled by this award, and I will treasure it always.”

Just for the record, WWP was recently selected as one of the Best Nonprofit Organizations to Work for 2011. So the next time you’re listening to "Bob Kingsley’s Country Top 40" on WGNA-F.M., take a moment and think of Bob’s award, and of course the work of all of our people in our military, past, present and future.

Congratulations to Bob Kingsley. Does he make you as proud of him as we are at WGNA-F.M.?
