ABC News Leads in Murrow Award Wins

Jul 1, 2008  •  Post A Comment

ABC News earned six Edward R. Murrow Awards to top the list of winners that will be honored by the Radio-Television News Directors Association at its annual dinner Oct. 13 in New York City.
ABC will pick up a Murrow for overall excellence, one for spot news coverage of the Minneapolis bridge collapse and one for “To Iraq and Back: Bob Woodruff Reports,” which recently received a Peabody Award.
CBS News won four Murrows, including one for the Aug. 9, 2007, edition of “CBS Evening News With Katie Couric” for best newscast, and one for “Boots on the Ground,” a four-part series about U.S. soldiers in Iraq by Lara Logan, who was recently promoted to chief foreign affairs correspondent.
Also honored: “The Way Home,” a “CBS Sunday Morning” report by correspondent Kimberly Dozier. She, like Mr. Woodruff, recovered from catastrophic injuries received while reporting in Iraq and turned her experience into a broader look at the experiences of wounded U.S. troops. Ms. Dozier’s story also received a Peabody Award recently.
“American Story With Bob Dotson” on NBC’s “Today” won a Murrow Award for writing.
In all, 77 awards will be dispensed Oct. 13 to representatives of 54 network and local TV and radio news organizations. A complete list of winners is posted at http://www.rtnda.org/pages/media_items/2008-murrow-national-winners1303.php.
