The Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) announced Tuesday that St. Louis Public Radio's education reporter Tim Lloyd is the winner of three regional 2014 Edward R. Murrow Awards.
The awards recognize the best electronic journalism produced by radio, television and online news organizations around the world.
St. Louis Public Radio competes in Region 5, which includes news organizations in Missouri, Kansas, Iowa and Nebraska. Other local winners include KMOX-AM with seven awards, KMOV-TV with four awards and KSDK-TV with three awards.
Tim was honored in the Writing category for his story about the school transfer controversy; in the Use of Sound category for his piece on the impact of the federal sequester on the band based at Scott Air Force Base; and in the Sports Reporting category for his story on the Bosnian national soccer team playing in St. Louis.
"We're proud that Tim's work is being recognized. The three pieces that won awards explore three very different aspects of life in St. Louis. They're a great example of St. Louis Public Radio's commitment to provide the kind of reporting that helps all of us understand our community better," said Margaret Wolf Freivogel, St. Louis Public Radio's Editor.
Regional winners advance to the national Edward R. Murrow Awards competition, which will be judged in May. A complete list of the 2014 regional winners can be found here.
