LaCerra, of Linden, was named Artist of the Year in a recent broadcast of The Billtown Bus Stop Radio Hour. “The Radio Hour emphasizes recordings that were created locally or have a regional connection,” said musician/host Johnny J. Blair. “There was community response and critical consensus for many of the artists that have been played on this show. They’ve all had a measurable impact on the regional music scene or have shown unique qualities.” The LaCerras, both enrolled in the applied human services major – and daughters of college General Services employee and nursing student Angela H. Colley – are scheduled to be interviewed on the radio show at 7 p.m. Jan. 25. The college also was represented in two other awards: Brad L. Nason, associate professor of mass communications and adviser to the WPTC-FM campus radio station, and Rob Steele, executive director of the Community Arts Center, were honored for their “outstanding contributions” in support of local artists. The Billtown Bus Stop Radio Hour can be heard at 7 p.m. Mondays on 89.7, WVYA-FM, and in a podcast.
