The folks are WKMG are sporting some new hardware.
The station picked up three first-place awards in the recent Associated Press Florida Broadcast competition. Local 6 won for best investigative story, for its coverage of the Orlando-Orange County Expressway Authority’s hiring of political consultant Doug Guetzloe; for its coverage of the Christmas Day tornadoes; and for its coverage of a fatal police shooting caught on tape by Sky 6. (I’d provide a link to the full list of state winners, but I have been unable to find those online.)
Meanwhile, the station is also celebrating a regional Edward R. Murrow Award from the RTNDA, won in the spot news category for Local 6’s coverage of the fatal police shooting. Locally, WDBO-AM also won a Murrow. Click here for the full list of regional winners.
