In announcing the premiere award at the New Zealand Radio Awards ceremony, presenters Kim Hill and John Campbell emphasised 1XX's work during and in the aftermath of Cyclone Debbie, in April 2017 and the important role local radio can play in a disaster, following flooding and then evacuation of Edgecumbe.

to recieve the prestigious award, named in memory of one of New Zealand top broadcasters, Sir Paul Holmes.
