Host & Producer of Scholastic Games is Honored by Broadcast Organization

Mehrling holds his CAB Presidents Award following the ceremony at Windows on the River in Cleveland’s Flats.

Jim Mehrling, the long-time host of WEOL-AM’s Scholastic Games High School Quiz  program was honored today with a Presidents’ Award from the Cleveland Association of Broadcasters (CAB).  The presentation included description of his 50 years in radio production and programming, dating from his years as WEOL’s Chief Announcer in the 1970s, followed by 13 years at Cleveland’s News-Talk WERE, and twenty-five years at Cleveland’s classical music station, WCLV.  He recounts some of his WEOL accomplishments as the most meaningful.

During his years in Cleveland he created a high school quiz program which he thought would be a great addition to the airwaves in Lorain county.  He returned to WEOL as a program producer in 1989 and with the support of WEOL and a generous grant from the Nordson Corporation, Scholastic Games was born.  The program is poised to enter a thirtieth season next year.

The CAB is dedicated to preserving the legacy of broadcasting in the Greater Cleveland area and recognition of service and excellence in the industry.  In annual awards presentations held since 1991, past honorees have ranged from Dorothy Fuldheim to Ernie Anderson, Linn Sheldon, Mike Douglas and Tom Hamilton.  Broadcast executives such as Betty Cope, Milton Maltz and Tom Embrescia have also been recognized as well as WCLV’s co-founder Robert Conrad, an honoree in 2001.  Other award recipients this year included a Presidents’ Award to veteran station owner Tom Wilson,  and special awards to Sally Spitz, Director of Local Sales at WNWV for “Excellence in Leadership,” sports host Les Levine of WKRK for “Excellence in Radio,” and News Anchor Wayne Dawson of WJW-TV for “Excellence in Television.”
