The Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA ) announced Wednesday that KWAM has won an Edward R. Murrow Award, one of the most prestigious prizes in American journalism.

KWAM was awarded a Regional Murrow Award by the RTDNA for Digital Broadcasting across the region.

“When I bought KWAM I promised Memphis that we would bring award-winning broadcasting back to the Mid-South. And I’m proud to announce that we are delivering on that promise,” KWAM station owner Todd Starnes said.

Our team was competing against radio stations in Kentucky, Tennessee, North and South Carolina, and West Virginia.

“Excellence in broadcast and journalism is our business. In a world where you don’t know where to turn to for reliable and responsible journalism, KWAM is a beacon holding strong to the historic pillars of trustworthy news while looking forward to the future of media consumption and meeting our community where they are,” KWAM CEO Dalton Glasscock said.

Regional winners automatically advance to the national competition, winners of which will be announced in August.

Starnes added: “And I also want to congratulate our broadcasting friends at WREG-TV and WATN-TV for winning Regional Murrow Awards” in television.
