Gary Sharp, co-host of “Sharp & Benning in the Morning” on NRG Media’s 1620 The Zone (KOZN, Omaha) has been named Nebraska Sportscaster of the Year by the National Sports Media Association.

This was Sharp’s first time winning the state award.  In all, there were 41 first-time winners of the state awards; two more than in 2017. He will be honored during the 60th annual NSMA Awards Weekend, June 22-24, 2019 in Winston-Salem, N.C., according to Dave Goren, Executive Director.

In addition to his responsibilities in the mornings, with co-host Damon Benning, Sharp is also the play-by-play voice for the University of Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks Division I Men’s Basketball program.  Sharp provides on field coverage during the Westwood One  national broadcasts of the NCAA Men’s College World Series each June in Omaha.
