Edward R. Murrow Awards


KERA received its first-ever national Edward R. Murrow Award, for excellence in video among large radio stations, at a gala in New York on Monday night. The video by Thorne Anderson and Courtney Collins was part of the series, "One Crisis Away: Rebuilding A Life."


KERA News won a total of 24 awards in 2015. Seven of those were national honors -- including the George Foster Peabody Award, broadcasting's highest honor. KERA was part of NPR's Peabody-winning Ebola coverage.


KERA News collected a half-dozen trophies last weekend, these from the Houston Press Club's Lone Star Awards. That brings the station's total award haul this year to 21 -- including second place for best newscast among large stations nationally from the Public Radio News Directors Inc. Here's a rundown of the station's awards this year.
