Our news teams never hesitate to go after the tough stories, and they tell them with passion and poignancy. The winning journalists touched lives and spotlighted issues that matter to their communities, building our audience, ratings and shareholder value.”

“We are delighted to recognize our journalists and stations with the D. Tennant Bryan awards for excellence in journalism,” said Donna M. Reed, vice president-content, for Media General. “The winning entries demonstrate our commitment to stories that make a difference to our viewers.”
