“Best Breaking News”

9.16.19

I am very honored to have received the Florida AP Broadcasters “Best Breaking News” award for the 2018 Radio College Competition. I could not attend the awards banquet in the Spring, but I recently received my plaque for my piece I reported and produced for WUFT-FM. The radio report covered an opioid dealer being charged with first-degree murder for the first time in Ocala for an overdose. Listen below:

While I now focus more on broadcasting instead of radio, I still feel it is an important element of news and am happy to have gained the experience and skills I continue to use for all of my reporting. Follow the link below to learn more about the awards and see the full list of winners.
