Philly has the best rock station in America, according to the National Association of Broadcasters.

WMMR (93.3) won the Marconi Award at Thursday's banquet surrounding the NAB's Radio Show in Washington, D.C. WMMR previously won it in 2007.

Program director Bill Weston and midday DJ Pierre Robert were there to accept. Robert had been nominated for major-market personality. Also in the nominee pool was WOGL (98.1) for oldies station.

Last year, B101 won in the categories of major-market station and adult-contemporary station.
