Boise State Public Radio Wins 6 Regional Edward R. Murrow Awards
The Radio Television Digital News Association has awarded Boise State Public Radio six of 13 regional Edward R. Murrow Awards.
Boise State Public Radio news director Sadie Babits was elated upon seeing the news. “I couldn't be more proud of our journalists,” said Babits. “They've worked incredibly hard over the past year to bring quality radio and digital content to our audience and these awards are well deserved."
Founded in 1971, the awards recognize the best work in radio, digital and television news. RTDNA said a record number of entries were submitted this year. Boise State Public Radio entries were judged with radio stations in Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington and Alaska. The winners in each category will now compete for national recognition at the Edward R. Murrow Awards presented in New York later this year.
