Michael Pickett of Taylorville has been named the Miller Media Group "Employee of the Quarter" for the 3rd quarter of 2017.
Group president Randal J. Miller made the announcement on Tuesday. Pickett has been a staff announcer for the group since April 2016. Pickett's duties have expanded since joining the group, with on-air reponsibilities now including hosting Saturday programming and also being part of the Taylorville Tornadoes play-by-play team.
Management and staff members vote on an "Employee of the Quarter" each quarter.
Pickett received a 100-dollar check, and his name is in a drawing for a Florida vacation to be awarded by the company next April.
