Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting and WFPL News Win National Murrow Award

(Louisville, KY—June 11, 2014) Louisville Public Media’s Kentucky Center for Investigative Reporting (KyCIR) and 89.3 WFPL News were honored today with a National Edward R. Murrow Award for the “Man With Many Chances” series. The Radio Television Digital News Association (RTNDA) bestowed the award to the KyCIR’s R.G. Dunlop and WFPL in the Radio Investigative Reporting category.

Dunlop’s reporting late last year revealed flaws in the Indiana criminal justice system that allowed longtime felon Richard Hooten to commit crime after crime with little intervention. Eventually, Hooten killed 17-year-old Tara Rose Willenborg in Clarksville.

This year, RTDNA awarded 98 national Edward R. Murrow Awards in 13 categories including Overall Excellence, Breaking News, Investigative Reporting and more. RTDNA received more than 4,000 entries during the 2014 awards season, setting an all-time record for entries in what proved to be one of the most competitive Edward R. Murrow Awards seasons in RTDNA history.

"It is a great honor for our new newsroom,” said Brendan McCarthy, KyCIR Managing Editor and interim News Director at WFPL. “The award highlights one of our earliest investigative projects and it underscores the high-caliber, quality journalism we are producing."
