Alumna wins ACM award
Shannon Potts Franco, B.A. ’95, graduated with a degree in biology, but her
career took an interesting turn when she made the switch to being an on-air radio
personality.
Now one of the hosts of legendary country station KVOO’s “The VOO Crew” morning
show in Tulsa, Okla., she was recently honored with the top award for radio DJs – an
Academy of Country Music (ACM) award.
For DJs, we very rarely get recognition, so to be nominated and then win – this is the
equivalent of an Oscar for our positions,” she said.
Franco, whose on-air name is Sunny Leigh, and her co-hosts, Rowdy Yates and Carly
Rush, won the award for On-Air Personality of the Year (MediumMarket). It was the
first nomination for Franco and the show.
Franco has been with KVOO and the morning show for nine years. Originally from
New Albany, she attended IU Southeast as a biology major and an English minor.
While on campus, she was a member of Sigma Kappa, Campus Activities Board, the
Field Biology Club, and was a bat girl for the IU Southeast baseball team.
My college years were the best years in my life,” she said.
