David Muir‘s reporting for 20/20 on the heroin epidemic has won a CINE Golden Eagle Award in the News Program/Continuing Coverage category. Heroin: Breaking Point in America exposed a lack of treatment options for heroin addicts. “The program was overwhelmingly well received by lawmakers, advocates educators and viewers,” writes ABC News president James Goldston announcing the win.
Two of the other finalists include Ronan Farrow‘s report for NBC News called America’s Chernobyl, and another story from ABC: Nightline’s report called Daughters for Sale.
CINE, the Council on International Non-Theatrical Events, is a public-private partnership with the USIA branch of the State Department. This is the 60th year they’ve presented the Golden Eagle Awards.
