Sun FM morning hosts voted Best of the Okanagan by Okanagan Life readers

Sun FM morning shows in Kelowna and Vernon were voted number one, taking top spot in the Best of the Okanagan Awards chosen annually by Okanagan Life readers. First place in Penticton went to Country 100.7 hosts Casey and Roo.

In Vernon, the Best Radio/TV Personality award went to Brian & Betty at 105.7 Sun FM. In Kelowna, Kevin & Sonia at 99.9 Sun FM took first.

“It was great to include a category for radio and TV,” says Okanagan Life publisher Paul Byrne. “Our local news is such an important part of our communities.”

Readers also gave a nod to retiring TV broadcaster Mike Roberts of Global Okanagan who placed second in the Central Okanagan. Third place for Best Radio/TV Personality went to K96.3 radio hosts David & Tony.

In the North, Frank Martina at 107.5 Kiss FM placed second and April Lyn Kimble at 105.7 Sun FM placed third. In the South Okanagan, 97.1 Sun FM hosts Randy & Mare placed second and Brian Mack third.

Each year, Valley residents from Salmon Arm to Osoyoos weigh in on who will make the list for Best of the Okanagan. While the awards include popular categories like ladies wear, best jewelry store and best shoes, new listings have popped up: best web design firm, best snowboard shop and, this year, most unique business.

“There’s no doubt the Okanagan is the best place to have fun and you’ll find the awards offer plenty of categories for outdoor enthusiasts,” adds Byrne. “We have best place for adrenaline rush, best place for family fun and, one of my favourites, best golf course.”

The awards also honour excellence in the arts with best local writer, best local musician/group and best performing arts group.
