By Kevin Eck 

The RTDNA has announced the winners of the 2015 Regional Edward R. Murrow Awards.

The RTDNA says the award is given for “the best electronic journalism produced by radio, television and online news organizations around the world.”

“At a time when news reaches people in so many ways, these awards become even more meaningful,” said RTDNA executive director Mike Cavender. “It is a tangible reminder of the high quality local journalism being done across the country.”


RTDNA received more than 4,200 entries during the 2015 awards season, setting an all-time record for the third year in a row.

In the large market television category, KING-TV in Seattle led the way with an unrivaled ten Murrows this year. Among other categories, they took home awards in Overall Excellence, Breaking News and Investigative Reporting.

WVUE-TV in New Orleans and WBBH-TV in Fort Myers, Florida each took home seven Murrows, the most in the small market television category. This included wins in the Overall Excellence and Newscast categories for both stations.

The winners of the Regional awards automatically move on to the national competition in May.
