Hubbard Radio Classic Rock WDRV-FM (97.1 The Drive)/Chicago has been honored by the Illinois Broadcasters Association with two Silver Dome Awards. The station won the "Best Radio Station Community Service" award for The Drive's "Friday Night Singalong." In this series, the City of Chicago partnered with WDRV and lit up the downtown Chicago Skyline in red, white and blue during the surge in the pandemic every Friday night.

The station also won an award for the "Behind The Song" podcast series, hosted by Janda Lane. Now entering its fifth year, "Behind The Song" dives into the lyrics of some of Classic Rock's most legendary titles with details and perspective on the singers, songwriters and inspirations that provided the foundation for each song.

WDRV PD/Brand Manager Rob Cressman said, "We are so very proud to have been considered for this high honor from The Illinois Broadcasters Association. Our team at The Drive is second to none and I am fortunate to be associated with such a talented group. To see such hard work and perseverance recognized is highly rewarding. It fuels our collective determination to perpetually strive for excellence in all that we do. Accepting these awards in the midst of the ongoing pandemic furthers our resolve to reach higher heights in spite of the associated obstacles and challenges."
