Kimberly Logue Named as Recipient of the 2008 Susan Jane Anstey Media Award
Equine Canada has named Kimberly Logue of hoofbeats! radio as the recipient of the Susan Jane Anstey Media Award. Logue had made a great effort to provide a voice to the equestrian community and to enhance the image of equestrian interests with the public through her weekly two-hour radio broadcast. With hoofbeats! radio, a syndicated horse talk show, Logue covers many equine topics while entertaining and educating her audience. The first broadcast of hoofbeats! Radio was heard on December 7, 2007, at 93.3 fm from the University of Guelph, and listenership has increased week after week. The popular radio show now also transmits from the tower at Mohawk College to reach a wider audience. “I am very excited to receive this award, especially because it recognizes a not-for-profit radio program that reaches the grass roots horse people and welcomes the general public into our horsey world,” said Logue.
In memory of Susan Jane Anstey, and in recognition of her invaluable contributions to Canadian equine interests, Equine Canada presents the Susan Jane Anstey Media Award to an exceptional individual who has delivered outstanding media coverage that served to enhance the image of Canadian equine interests to the Canadian public. At the Equine Canada Annual Awards Gala, on Saturday February 7, 2009, in Ottawa, ON, Logue was awarded the Susan Jane Anstey Media Award by Equine Canada president, Al Patterson.
