Every year those who work in radio and television in Iowa gather at the Iowa Broadcast News Association Annual Meeting for continued professional development and recognition. This past Saturday, the annual meeting was in Cedar Rapids, and KNIA/KRLS staff was in attendance participating in workshops on the current state of the broadcast industry, news writing, and ethics, among others.
At Saturday evening’s banquet KNIA/KRLS received recognition in news and sports in the following categories; general reporting, political coverage, features, use of actuality, public affairs, farm and agribusiness, sports coverage and sports play by play.
Judges for the contest included radio and television professionals from outside of the state of Iowa from approximately six different states. This is the third year in a row for KNIA/KRLS to receive recognition at the event.
