National Murrow Award Given to News Director Rich Egger
For the first time ever, Tri States Public Radio's newsroom has won a National Edward R. Murrow Award from the Radio & Television Digital News Association (RTDNA). This year's award for Use of Sound in Small Market Radio goes to News Director Rich Egger for Audio Postcard from Snake Alley. The piece was originally judged as the best small market entry among public and commercial radio stations in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio, and was then considered for the national award after receiving the regional recognition.
The Tri States Public Radio news room is no stranger to winning awards, having collected dozens of state, regional and national awards for broadcast journalism excellence in recent years.
