The RTDNA hosted the Edward R. Murrow Awards ceremony at Gotham Hall Tuesday night.

More than 500 journalists from across the country attended.

“Tonight we honor television, radio and digital journalists who during 2017 most exemplified the values of that intrepid founding father of our craft, Edward R. Murrow. And we celebrate both them, and him. We do so at a time when saluting responsible journalism has never been more important,” said executive director Dan Shelley.

The evening paid tribute to Washington Post correspondent Jamal Kashoggi, who was murdered at the Saudi consulate in Turkey.

KHOU news director Sally Ramirez accepted the station’s award for Best Breaking news coverage during and in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. Ramirez, along with those who accepted the award on behalf of CNN for the network’s continued coverage in the aftermath of Hurricare Maria, emphasized the importance of covering the aftermath of Hurricane and providing life saving coverage.

World News Tonight David Muir accepted his award for best national newscast.
