Broadcasting association awards scholarship to Northwest’s Nuelle

Northwest Missouri State University student Benjamin Nuelle has been awarded a $1,500 scholarship from the Missouri Broadcasters Association Foundation. 

Nuelle is one of nine scholarship recipients who will be recognized during a luncheon Friday, June 6, at the state association’s annual convention in Branson.

Nuelle, a senior from Higginsville, is working on a mass media major with an emphasis on multimedia journalism at Northwest. He is a music minor. 

He is an on-air announcer and member of the news staff for the University’s award-winning National Public Radio affiliate, KXCV-KRNW. Nuelle is student executive producer of “All Things Northwest,” a program airing once a month and hosted by Northwest President Dr. John Jasinski. Nuelle also has numerous responsibilities as sports engineer for the Bearcat Radio Network.

“The entire professional and student staff at KXCV-KRNW is proud of Ben and his accomplishments, including this prestigious Missouri Broadcasters Association Scholarship award,” KXCV-KRNW Station Manager Rodney Harris said. “Ben is an outstanding student leader and contributor to KXCV-KRNW, and he is just one of many of talented students who make up our award-winning team.” 

Additionally, Nuelle will attend the Institute on Political Journalism through The Fund for American Studies in Washington, D.C., June 7 through Aug. 1. The program gathers about 80 students from throughout the country to learn the news business by combining learning in a classroom setting with practical internship experience.

Mark Gordon, president and CEO of the Missouri Broadcasters Association, said the association received a large number of scholarship applicants this year and congratulated Nuelle as one of the recipients.

“We congratulate Ben for being awarded a $1,500 scholarship from the MBA,” Gordon said. “We are pleased to be able to help students who are studying to be future broadcasters in the state of Missouri.”

With 100,000 watts behind it, KXCV-KRNW is the most powerful station in the region and reaches parts of four states – Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa. As the flagship of the Bearcat Radio Network, KXCV-KRNW also broadcasts all Northwest football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball games. Since its inception in 1971, KXCV has served as a training ground for Northwest students interested in broadcasting, and serving listeners while training students remains foremost in the radio station’s mission.
