Rivet Radio Makes the Best of a Bad Situation
Boom goes the Edward R. Murrow Awards dynamite!
When a glass desk spontaneously exploded into pieces at the Chicago offices of Rivet Radio last summer (it belonged to the office manager), the outlet did what any resourceful news organization would. They turned the incident into a solid piece of reporting.
Today, that reporting, titled “Our Glass Desk Exploded. Yours Could, Too,” is among the winners of an Edward R. Murrow Award in the Small Online News Organizations category. The seven-minute piece won for Investigative Reporting (Audio).
In the Rivet report, there is some clip-sound of breaking glass.
