Siler, 2010 Phillip H. Grogg Award Winner

Jeff Siler, communications arts major with an emphasis in broadcasting, was named the 2010 Phillip H. Grogg Award recipient in a ceremony held Thursday, May 5, 2010, at the Terry M. Fischer Theatre.

"It is a great honor to receive this award on behalf of the station," said Siler. "It took a lot of hard work to get to the level of where I am now. It's a great accomplishment for myself and a tribute the alumni from the station."
Siler is a 2002 graduate of Ritenour High School, and is the son of Ed and Brenda Siler of St. Ann. He hosts Tuesday Night Take Over with Jeff and Mallory on KCFV from 7 to 11 p.m. Siler is the program director and is responsible for the music heard on the radio station. He is a National Broadcasting Society member and recently won an honorable mention in NBS Audio Promotion. Siler has interned in the production department and the Dave Glover show at Emmis Communication.

In addition to his radio work, Siler has volunteered for Farm Aid and Valley of Flowers as well as St. Louis Community College - Florissant Valley blood drives, the open house and student government awards. He plans to graduate STLCC from in the fall of 2010.

"Jeff is a long-time member of KCFV and has become a go-to guy for almost anything at the station," said Tim Gorry, general manager of KCFV, Florissant Valley's student radio station. "He has continuously shown that he is knowledgeable of the station, but is always on hand to help out his fellow students! I am extremely proud of Jeff and his accomplishments this past year at KCFV."

The Grogg Award was established in 1983 in memory of Phillip Grogg, a student manager of KCFV who died in the fall of 1982 as a result of injuries sustained in an automobile accident. After Grogg's death, his mother Norma Grogg, gathered his unspent work study checks and donated them to the station. KCFV used that money to start a scholarship fund in Grogg's honor. Every spring, an outstanding student who demonstrates excellence in the areas of broadcasting skills and leadership is recognized.
