Thanks Tri-State! repeats Murrow award

For the second year in a row, has been honored by receiving the Region 7 Edward R. Murrow award for Best Website.

The award is given out each year by the Radio and Television News Director's Association to one large market station like Chicago, and one smaller market station in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and Ohio. With the regional award, moves on to national competition later this year.

The Murrow is especially prized by broadcast and online journalists because it's based on the depth of content and community service shown by a television station website. In other words, it's awarded to the station that works the hardest for its viewers and website readers.

That's where you come in. It's the day in and day out committment to keeping you informed that won us this award two years in a row. It's also why you've made your preferred choice for local online news in Tri-State Marketwatch surveys for the past six years.

Thanks for your loyalty, and give yourselves a pat on the back. You deserve it!
