Bristol Broadcasting Company is now accepting applications for the Nininger Scholarship Award.
On March 9, the company announced that one scholarship in the amount of $1,000 will go to an undergraduate student attending a 2 or 4 year college with a major in Journalism and/or Advertising. The deadline to apply is May 31, at 4:00 p.m. at the Paducah office of Bristol Broadcasting.
