New Westminster native and Burnaby resident Bob Marjanovich will receive the inaugural most philanthropic sports broadcaster award from The Stadnyk Foundation.

Marjanovich, who hosts a weeknight evening show and another on Saturday afternoons on the TEAM 1040 is being honoured for his work with the Michael Cuccione Foundation throughout the year, but specifically for organizing the annual Moj's Whistler Shootout fundraising golf tournament. According to a press release, Marjanovich raised more than $50,000 in 2012 for the Cuccione foundation.

Marjanovich, who is currently in New Orleans doing shows and reports from the Super Bowl, will receive the award in conjunction with the Paul Carson Broadcast and Media Awards. The nominations in 10 categories were announced Tuesday with the winners being named Feb. 7.
