Six local television stations were among the winners of 2010 Alfred I. duPont-Columbia University Awards, the highest number of local stations to win in more than two decades, Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism announced today.
CBS News won two duPonts for political and economic reporting, and MediaStorm, a multimedia production studio, became the first winner of an award for a Web-based production from the organization, which traditionally have recognized broadcast work only. NPR and PBS’ "POV" were among other winners.
Honorees will be presented with their awards Jan. 21 at a ceremony at Columbia University in New York. A full list of winners can be found here, and full details will be available in the January issue of TVWeek.com’s NewsPro magazine, to be published Monday.
