Ottawa’s Hot 89.9 radio station won an award at Canadian Music Week for its controversial Win A Baby contest last fall.
On Friday the station won Radio Promotion of the Year at the festival, which celebrates the Canadian music and radio industry.
The contest, which had couples apply for up to three fertility treatments, was met with scorn by some listeners who called it immoral.
The station surprised the five finalist couples on Oct. 11 when they were told they would all receive up to three fertility treatments, rather than just one couple.
“Our true Hotties were on board with this from day one and to see us get international attention and now this award is a testament to how great they truly are,” said Hot 89.9 co-host Jeff Mauler in a news release.
Hot 89.9 said in the coming weeks it will update listeners on how the five couples are doing.
