“`I am delighted to announce that KNX 10-70 AM shall receive the national and prestigious Edward R. Murrow Award in the category of Large Market Radio:  Breaking News. My colleagues are some of the most professional news reporters in broadcasting,  and this is a well deserved accolade.

“`By the way, Edward R. Murrow was the CBS News lead reporter and anchor, who was famous for his 1940 reporting of the German blitz of England at the advent of World War II. Murrow hosted See It Now, a 1950s news program that would win numerous awards; and delivered a special prologue in  Around the World in Eighty Days. He was instrumental in Senator Joseph McCarthy’s eventual censure due to his reckless Communist witch hunts that ended the careers of people in Hollywood. Recently, Edward R. Murrow’s work was cinematically chronicled in Good Night and Good Luck.

“`According to executives at KNX, this is the initial time in the 49-year history in the News format that the station has won this national award.  The Radio Television Digital News Association puts it this way: To receive an Overall Excellence Award, a News Organization exemplifies the highest standards to serve the public through quality electronic journalism.

“`This year’s winners will be recognized at a gala in New York on October 9th. Once again, KUDOS to my talented colleagues at KNX 10-70 AM.

Until next time>                               “never forget”
