"This honor speaks volumes to the amazing body of work from the team at St. Louis Public Radio in the digital journalism space," said Tim Eby, general manager. "We’re grateful to receive this recognition for the phenomenal audio and digital storytelling, investigative reporting, breaking news coverage and audience engagement that is available on stlpublicradio.org and our various digital platforms. In addition, our work would not be possible without the tremendous support we receive from individuals, businesses and foundations throughout the St. Louis region."
