"Your Favorite, 98Q" was named Georgia's Class A Station of the Year based on the station's performance and community service over the past year.  The station was also honored for its weekday morning sports show, "Sportstime" and for producing the best news and sports stories.

News and sports awards were also presented to Sweet Onion Country 1017 FM and to NewsTalk 970, WVOP.

Vidalia Communications also contributed to three $1500 college scholarships which are awarded each year to students enrolled in broadcast journalism programs at Georgia colleges and universities.
