Kids Commute wins prestigious international radio award

Apr 23, 2020

For the second year in a row, Kids Commute has won a bronze award in the New York Radio Festival Awards.

Competing in the Best Children/Young Adult Program category, Kids Commute placed alongside radio programs from India, New Zealand and Sweden.

"We're so excited," says Kids Commute host Kate Botello. "We want to make classical music accessible and show that it's not fancy - it's just music." 

Kids Commute producer Tony Bero agrees. "Kate and I work hard producing a show that uses the right language that doesn't talk down to young people," he says.

Kids Commute airs daily at 7:40 a.m. during the school year.
