WFIU News has been nationally honored two years running for both on-air and online reporting about education in Indiana.

Our StateImpact Indiana education reporting team has won a 2014 National Edward R. Murrow Award! The team, in 2013 comprising reporters Kyle Stokes and Elle Moxley, won for Best Website (Audio) among small Online News Organizations.

This award marks two consecutive years of National Murrow honors for StateImpact. In 2013, Progress Report: Education in Indiana, an hourlong special that discussed standardized tests, teacher evaluations, merit pay, and school choice, was honored nationally in the category of Small Market Radio Documentary.

“The news team continues to file sound-rich reports on issues important to Indiana in a way that appeals to listeners and judges alike,” said WFIU-WTIU General Manager Perry Metz. “We’re proud of what they’re doing.”

WFIU News will receive its plaque at a ceremony on Monday, October 6, at the New York Marriott Marquis.

The winners, selected by the Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA), represent work of the highest quality produced by radio, television, and online news organizations around the world. RTDNA received a record number of award entries, and judges selected the national winners from among finalists in 13 regions across the U.S. and from international entrants around the globe.

The StateImpact Indiana project began in 2011 as a local-national collaboration among WFIU, Indiana Public Broadcasting Stations, and NPR. Our reporters, stationed in the WFIU newsroom, rove the state to document how education policy made in the Statehouse affects ordinary people within and outside the classroom.

RTDNA is the world’s largest professional organization devoted exclusively to electronic journalism. It represents local and network journalists in broadcasting, cable, and digital media in more than 30 countries. The full list of 2014 National Edward R. Murrow Awards winners is at the RTDNA site.
