Earlier this year Raleigh Downtowner, a local monthly magazine, challenged its readers to identify their favorites among restaurants, goods and services, shopping, people and the ubiquitous “out & about” category that covers just about everything else. The current issue, available on newsstands downtown and online, names the top three candidates in all 111 categories in the inaugural “Best of the Downtowner” awards. Although WKNC failed to place in the “most attractive staff” grouping (something about having a face for radio?), we did nestle in between 96rock and G105 as the readers’ second choice for favorite radio station. Thanks to everyone that voted for us.
