Help Give The LION 90.7fm a Woodie

The LION 90.7fm WKPS is up for the 2011 mtvU Woodie Award for the Best College Radio Station. The mtvU Woodie Awards are an annual awards show catered to the college music market, featuring categories like 'Woodie of the Year' and 'Breaking Woodie.'

President Zach Zimbler says that last year, the radio station placed in the top 10 but did not walk away with the big prize. He's hard set on getting them to finish first this year though. Check out the teaser they made to promote the award (spoiler alert: 'Woodie' puns are enthusiastically embraced).

So if you want to support Penn State student radio, head on over to the award website and vote for WKPS.
