The Illinois Broadcasters Association has awarded WTIM Radio in Taylorville with a Silver Dome Award for best sports play-by-play in small market radio across the state.
WTIM received the award for an entry in the statewide competition submitted by station announcer Avery Cooper, for play-by-play of a December 17th, 2021 live broadcast of the Taylorville girls basketball team's game against Mahomet-Seymour at Dolph Stanley Gym in Taylorville. The Lady Tornadoes won the game 61 to 49.
The award was announced at last fall's Illinois Broadcasters Association Annual Convention.
