WTOP Wins Four Murrows

murrow77.jpg The National Edward R. Murrow Awards are being announced today.

For the second year in a row, WTOP wins more than any other radio station with four awards. In the “Major Market” radio category, no other station won more than one national award. WJLA ABC 7 was the only TV winner in Washington. WBAL Radio also won a national Murrow award.

Jim Farley, WTOP’s VP of News had this to say: “This is a tribute to (WTOP) News Director Mike McMearty and a newsroom full of hard-charging, competitive people. Any reports on the demise of Radio Journalism are entirely premature.”

Congratulations to WTOP, WBAL, and WJLA.

> Update: NPR has won four Edward R. Murrow in the category of networks. (FYI: WTOP competes locally.) The awards for NPR recognize NPR.org; NPR’s news and talk show Tell Me More, on its weekly commentary series, “Can I Just Tell You?”; sports reporting for the series “Friday Night Lives”; and news coverage of the bombing of a U.S. Stryker vehicle in Afghanistan’s Kandahar province.
