Country's hitmakers won't be the only award winners KUZZ listeners hear on the radio today. Two of the station's DJs took home an award at the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards over the weekend.

Bakersfield's own Steve Gradowitz and Geoff Emery won the award for on-air personality of the year — medium market, beating out DJs from Lakeland, Fla.; Knoxville, Tenn.; Tucson, Ariz.; and Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

The local station is no stranger to being honored by the industry. In 2002 and 2009, KUZZ was named radio station of the year among markets its size by the Country Music Association.
