Neuhoff Media Honored with Community Partner Award

For 16 years, the Macon County Legacy Do Something Great Awards have honored impactful social and philanthropic initiatives, companies and individuals making a positive impact on our community.

This year, a media outlet has been honored for the first time with the selection of Neuhoff Media as the 2020 recipient of the Do Something Great Community Partner Award. The award recognizes Neuhoff Media’s work throughout this year’s pandemic to spearhead a collaborative response and help our community face its greatest challenges.

“This prestigious award honors Neuhoff Media for their partnership with the nonprofit sector in leveraging their resources, expertise and talent to lead and to make a positive impact,” said Natalie Beck, CEO of The Community Foundation of Macon County (CFMC). “We salute Neuhoff Media for their dedication to corporate social responsibility and their shared value for philanthropy.”

Beck notes that Neuhoff Media was collectively nominated for this award by CFMC, Crossing Healthcare and The United Way of Decatur & Mid-Illinois.

The award was presented virtually to Brian Byers, Neuhoff Morning Show host and VP of development. “This has been an incredibly tough year for our community, our country and our world,” said Byers. “I’m very proud to work for a company that doesn’t just give out information but rolls up its sleeves and makes an impact on this place we call home. Our team has never lost sight of the needs in our community and has remained committed to making the world a better place. On behalf of all the Neuhoff Media employees, we are humbled and honored to receive this award.”

Neuhoff Communications CEO/President Beth Neuhoff echoed Brian’s appreciation for the honor. “We are extremely grateful to the Macon County Legacy group for honoring our team and the true first voice of Decatur, Brian Byers. The health, safety and quality of life for Macon County’s residents are at the core of why we do what we do. It’s our honor to serve the community – particularly through such a difficult year.”
