Murrow Awards, Best Radio Newscast, "September 23, 2019" Alabama Public Radio

Please find enclosed Alabama Public Radio’s entry for the Edward R .Murrow Award for Best Radio Newscast, titled “September 23, 2019. During this year, the two member Alabama Public Radio news team spent fourteen months and three thousand miles on the road, with no budget, investigating the human trafficking issue in Alabama. This effort was pursued while the Alabama Public Radio produced one hundred and seven minutes of newscasts per week, including APR’s entry for best newscast.

The City of Tuscaloosa held a memorial service for Officer Dornell Cousette, Alabama heath regulators banned certain waters from oyster harvesting, The West Alabama Human Trafficking held a presentation, and a question answer session for parents, to help keep kids from being trafficked.
