By Andrew Gauthier Comments

RTDNA has officially announced the winners of the 2011 Regional Edward R. Murrow Award.

KUSA (Denver), KARE (Minneapolis-St. Paul), KRDO (Colorado Springs), and WGRZ (Buffalo) had especially impressive showings this year, dominating their respective divisions in addition to winning Overall Excellence.

In a show of vindication for KARE’s departing VP of News Tom Lindner, the NBC-affiliate won 7 of the 12 categories in its division.

KTUL (Tulsa) and WVUE (New Orleans) also garnered a significant amount of awards, with their call signs showing up more than any other station in their individual divisions.
