CHERRY HILL, NJ—The Lubetkin Media Companies (LMC), celebrating its first decade of operation in December 2014, cemented its growing reputation for creating award-winning multimedia programming by earning four prestigious ASTRA Awards from the New Jersey Communications, Advertising and Marketing Association (NJCAMA).
For the first time, the firm won an ASTRA Award for website design. The award, in the “Web design with budget under $15,000” category, was presented for the website Lubetkin designed and implemented for nationally known radio personality and author, Dr. Dan Gottlieb, host of the WHYY-FM radio program, “Voices in the Family.” The highly interactive website, www.DrDanGottlieb.com, features Dr. Gottlieb’s writing,
a complete searchable archive of his Philadelphia Inquirer newspaper columns, podcasts of his radio programs, video conversations, and other content.
“Not only is this the most vibrant and user friendly website I’ve ever had, Steve Lubetkin is a flexible and responsive caretaker for many aspects of my professional endeavors,” said Dr. Gottlieb. “He is a great teacher and a valuable friend.”
Three video projects produced by the firm this year also were recognized with ASTRA Awards. With the 2014 recognitions, LMC has now won half a dozen ASTRA Awards since the firm was established in 2004.
