Over 1,200 nominations were received, and now it is time for the people to ultimately decide who is the best. Where is the best restaurant? Who makes the best breakfast?

Tom McAuliffe II, Owner and Operator of MyFM Media, said his team has been blown away by the community’s interest in this contest.
“In our first year pulling off a contest like this we weren’t sure how the community would respond,” he exclaimed. “We are so excited about the response and recognition of great businesses in and around our area.”
Nominations began May 12th and closed May 28th. During that time, visitors nominated over 1,200 businesses across 225 categories. MyFM’s Quest for the Best is a mechanism for people to celebrate who they believe is the best at what they do, especially after a challenging 15 months unlike we have ever seen.
“We work hard everyday to champion local businesses, to encourage people to shop local, and to celebrate those who do their best to contribute back to our local community. We are so impressed with the resiliency of our business community. We can’t wait to see who comes out on top.”
Gold and Silver winners will be crowned in 11 consolidate categories:
Activities and Entertainment
Food and Beverage
Home and Garden
Lifestyle and Beauty
Vehicles and Services
Within those main categories are numerous sub-categories. Winners will be published online, celebrated across MyFM101.3 and WMRC 1490 and published in the MyFM’s Quest for the Best winners magazine on August 18th.
In addition to showcasing the winners, the magazine is designed and produced entirely my MyFM Media to serve as a guidebook for both locals and visitors seeking the very best that the area has to offer. MyFM Media plans to publish 10,000 copies that will be distributed throughout the region.
“Through the nomination phase we can truly tell that our community, particularly our business community, has been eager for something like this, done on a scale that has never been seen here before,” he said. “Combining the radio stations, our digital platforms, and our social media following, this will be the biggest, best and most legitimate contest of its kind that our region has ever seen.”
