APR News Director Pat Duggins and reporters Maggie Martin, Ryan Vasquez, and Stan Ingold earned the honor for the Best Breaking News Coverage during the April 2011 tornadoes. It is an honor well deserved!
We at Alabama Public Radio are really proud of our new website.
A lot of people put in quite a bit of work to get it ready, but none more than Eva Lynch. You probably do not know her name because she isn't on the air. But she is a tireless worker here at APR.
