Media General, Inc., one of the nation's largest connected-screen media companies, announced that WSLS-TV, the local NBC affiliate in Roanoke, VA, has won the prestigious National Edward R. Murrow Award for “Hard News Reporting.”

The Radio Television Digital News Association (“RTDNA”) honored WSLS-TV for its story about authorities in Virginia during the mid-twentieth century that deemed certain people not fit to have children and surgically sterilized them without their consent. The story raised awareness of the issue with the Commonwealth’s top lawmakers, who decided that each victim deserved to be compensated for the injustice.

“I am so proud of the team at WSLS-TV,” said Deborah A. McDermott, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Media General. “Their tenacious reporting and compelling storytelling made a significant and positive impact in the lives of these individuals. This award is inspiring and extremely well-deserved.”

RTDNA also presented regional Edward R. Murrow awards to the following television stations owned or operated by Media General:

WIAT-TV (Birmingham, AL): “Overall Excellence,” “Hard News,” “Best Feature” and “Best Use of Video”
KHON-TV (Honolulu, HI): “Overall Excellence,” “Best Newscast” and “Best News Series”
KELO-TV (Sioux Falls, SD): “Breaking News,” “Hard News” and “Sports Single Report”
WNCN-TV (Raleigh, NC): “Reporting: Hard News” and “News Series”
WSAV-TV (Savannah, GA): “Best Website” and “Continuing Coverage”
WSLS-TV (Roanoke, VA): “Hard News Reporting” and “Continuing Coverage”
WIVB-TV (Buffalo, NY): “Best Newscast” and “Best News Series”
WHTM-TV (Harrisburg, PA): “Investigative Series”
WPRI-TV (Providence, RI): “Investigative Reporting”
WWLP-TV (Springfield, MA): “Hard News Reporting”
KSNW-TV (Wichita, KS): “Best Website”

“I congratulate all of our stations for winning some of the most prestigious honors in our profession,” said Vincent L. Sadusky, President and Chief Executive Officer, Media General. “Outstanding journalism is our hallmark and distinguishes Media General’s stations from others in our local markets.”

The Murrow Awards, presented by the Radio Television Digital News Association, reward the excellence that Edward R. Murrow made a standard for the electronic news profession. Radio, television and online news managers from markets across the country judged the entries from 14 regions across the United States and from international entrants across the globe. RTDNA has been honoring outstanding achievements in electronic journalism with the Murrow Awards since 1971. Regional award winners automatically compete for the national Edward R. Murrow Awards.
