Your community station may get inspiration for its radio projects taking in some of the winning endeavors.
The Online News Association conference happened over the weekend in Washington, DC. Its awards recognize journalism with a variety of creative digital approaches for audiences.
Audio winners may give community radio ideas for presenting local stories in new ways. The winners were large newsroom: The Wall from Reveal/Center for Investigative Reporting, and small newsroom: Frontier of Change from AIR: Finding America and KNBA. Also, the AIR project Truckbeat was a winner over the weekend.
In some instances, the winners’ use of data, the web and familiar audio techniques created an immersive and informative experience for audiences. This is a great exercise is observing what your station can do. You can view the full list of winners here.
