There were two local winners announced today when the national Edward R. Murrow Awards were given out. Overall, though, Minnesota was not particularly well represented in the annual awards from the Radio Television News Directors Association.
Of the 95 awards handed out, these are the two Minnesota winners:
Boyd Huppert, the marvelous storyteller at KARE won for best writing. (See compilation video)
The Star Tribune won for overall online news excellence for local news organizations. The entry (available here) stressed the website’s video offerings.
