Stannard honored with LAB "Lifetime Achievement Award"

BATON ROUGE -- Doug Stannard, general manager of Stannard Broadcasting in Leesville, was honored Wednesday with the Louisiana Association of Broadcasters' "Lifetime Achievement Award."
Stannard received the award at the LAB awards luncheon in Baton Rouge, winning in the radio category.
The group singled Stannard out from broadcasters around the state, recognizing his contributions in a career that has spanned nearly four decades.
Stannard began his career in 1977. He, along with staff, helped build Stannard Broadcasting into a radio staple in West Central Louisiana.
KVVP-FM quickly became a country favorite and still is as Today's Country 105.7.
In 1985, Stannard brought a different kind of music culture to the area with the launch of a rock station, KROK-FM, arguably one of the most unique rock stations in the South.
Under his leadership, a third station was launched in 2002, KUMX-FM, a mix-genre music station. It has listeners across the state.
Stannard is a veteran, having served in the Louisiana Army National Guard. He holds his bachelor's and master's degrees from Northwestern State University. He also attended the University of New Orleans.
A noted stained glass artist, Stannard's work can be seen all over the state -- and beyond.
Stannard's father, Chaplain John Stannard (Army Col. Ret.) also holds an LAB "Lifetime Achievement Award." He and wife, Eileen, were on hand for their son's awarding on Wednesday.
