Perrysburg, OH— December 12, 2019—Kevin Higginbotham, producer and talent of the Drew Scott Show, available on Owens Community College Radio (OCCR), was selected as a finalist for the Intercollegiate Broadcast Systems (IBS) 2020 College Audio Media Awards.
Higginbotham attends Owens Community College (OCC) and is a student staff worker for Owens OutComm Student Media, the center that houses OutCast OCCR which streams his weekly program on Thursdays at 3pm.
