Winners named for DuPont-Columbia University Awards


Six local TV stations – the most in over two decades – are among the 2010 winners of the Alfred I. DuPont-Columbia University Awards for excellence in broadcast journalism. Both radio awards this year went to network productions. Also, the first duPont Award for a Web-based production will go to MediaStorm, a multimedia production studio.

Selected by the duPont Jury for excellence in broadcast journalism, the award-winning news programs aired in the United States between July 1, 2008 and June 30, 2009. These honorees will be presented with silver duPont batons at a ceremony held at Columbia University on Thursday, January 21, 2010.
