It was a big night for media professionals in Rochester on Saturday.

The Rochester Media Association held its annual awards banquet.

News10NBC’s own Justin Granit, Mike Jaeger and Janet Lomax received awards at the ceremony.

Lomax was named one of four impact award winners. The award was given with a distinguished career in local media who also give back to their community.

“We have an opportunity to reach back to help someone else, mentor them as they come up in this business. When I look at the award, and I see the word impact on there, that is deeply humbling to me,” said Lomax.

Granit received the Young Media Professional Award. Jaeger received this year’s Established Media Professionals Award.
