The Environment Report Wins National Edward R. Murrow Award

The Environment Report from Michigan Radio has been recognized for excellence in broadcast journalism by the Radio Television Digital News Association with a 2011 National Edward R. Murrow Award. The Environment Report received the award for Best Audio News Documentary in the Radio: Large Market category for "Coal: Dirty Past, Hazy Future." In the series, The Environment Report's Mark Brush, Rebecca Williams, Lester Graham and Shawn Allee take an in-depth look at the future of coal in this country and the true costs of our dependence on coal. The series explores the role that coal plays in our lives and in the lives of those who depend on coal mining for a living. "Coal: Dirty Past, Hazy Future" takes listeners on a journey from their light switch back to America's coal fields, and takes a closer look at the technologies that promise to deliver coal into the new green economy.

The Environment Report was the only news organization in Michigan to receive a 2011 National Edward R. Murrow Award, and one of seven public radio stations nationwide. This award is the third national Murrow Award that The Environment Report has received. The news service also received a National Murrow Award in 2010 for the five-part series "Dioxin Delays."

This year's National Murrow winners will be honored at the RTDNA Awards Dinner in October in New York.

The Environment Report is a locally produced program from Michigan Radio committed to revealing the relationship between the natural world and the everyday lives of people in Michigan. The Environment Report airs on Michigan Radio every Tuesday and Thursday at 8:55 am and 5:45 pm. Michigan Radio broadcasts at 91.7 FM in southeastern Michigan, 91.1 FM in Flint, and 104.1 FM in western Michigan.

 


 

Kalamazoo Gazette:

If the Bash ain't broke, don't fix it. One of the organizers of the biggest country music festivals in West Michigan said the B-93 Birthday Bash's transition to the U.S. 131 Motorsports Park in Martin went smoothly enough that they aren't planning any major changes this year.

Full story: B-93 says 'thank you' to listeners with 19th Birthday Bash (Thu, 6/16)
