Three TV stations win total five Murrow awards

WGRZ in Buffalo, N.Y., won the overall excellence award in the small market category of the national Edward R. Murrow awards, sponsored by the Radio Television Digital News Association.

The Buffalo station also won for video continuing coverage, and for video reporting: hard news.

KUSA in Denver won for video sports reporting, according to a statement from Corporate. And KARE in Minneapolis-St. Paul won for writing.

  1. What a sad and pathetic award the Murrows have become. If one had to point to a single indicator of the steep and sad decline in reporting, go no further than what piddly and inconsequential "stories" won this year. These TV news madlibs would laughable if actual news wasn't so critical to a healthy society.
