Illinois Public Media won three regional Edward R. Murrow awards

Illinois Newsroom’s work over the past year has earned them recognition from the Radio Television Digital News Association in three areas:

From Moss Bresnahan, CEO of Illinois Public Media:

“We’re thrilled to be honored with three Regional Edward R. Murrow awards this year— widely considered the most prestigious awards given in local journalism. It is a testament to how our team stepped up its commitment to trusted local journalism in 2020, in a time when other newsrooms were shrinking in the face of a pandemic and budget cuts.”

They will now be up for national Edward R. Murrow awards in those three areas.
