The AMT Legacy Award
“A person’s legacy at AMT can best be described by the memories and standards one leaves to others; the images that come to mind when a person’s name is spoken.
How wonderful to have a legacy so linked to the idea of success, integrity, honesty, and the freedom to always do the right thing, especially when nobody is watching.
Its originality and striking beauty should inspire us all to constantly revisit the achievement of Legacy award winners. It’s the highest honor that can be bestowed on any member of the AlwaysMountainTime team.” -Pete Benedetti, CEO
We have honored 2 AlwaysMountainTime team members into the inaugural class of the AMT Legacy Awards. These 2 team members go above and beyond their “job descriptions” and are in a class of their own. Meet them below.
Axel Contreras – Program Director, La Nueva Mix-Glenwood Springs
It’s often said that a radio station takes on the personality of its Program Director. Which is exactly why we have so many great radio stations. But in this case, it goes way above and beyond the boundaries of “program director.” Not only are you the program director, you’re the heartbeat, soul and command center of La Nueva mix. Literally, the mouthpiece for an entire community. You do a whole list of things above and beyond the call of duty. You’re part DJ, part entertainer, part newscaster, part engineer, part translator, part therapist, part sales person, part politician, part social chairman – and the list goes on and on…But, really when its all said and done, you’re literally a human bulletin board for your audience and the entire spanish speaking community in the Colorado mountains. Unlike many radio personalities, your audience relies on you, pays attention to you and, most importantly, trusts you. The same qualities that make you a great Program Director – consistency, focus, experience, passion, talent, being brilliant at the fundamentals, integrity, ethics, and performance are all things that make KQSE a great radio station and all outstanding qualities that made it a pleasure to congratulate you as a Co-inductee into our inaugural class of AMT Legacy Award Winners. Its very much deserved, and I’m very proud to be on your team, Axel.”
