NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

FOX 8 is proud to announce we’ve been honored with the prestigious Regional Edward R. Murrow Award for Overall Excellence. The awards handed out by the Radio Television Digital News Association recognize organizations that “demonstrate the spirit of excellence that Murrow set as a standard for the profession of electronic journalism.”

RTDNA tweeted out the Overall Excellence winners Monday morning. The other awards will be announced Tuesday at 10 a.m.

The “Overall Excellence” award “reflects the depth and scope of the news organization”.  FOX 8’s entry highlighted the gamut of coverage in 2015: from investigative reports into government corruption, to touching stories on rebuilding lives 10 years after Katrina, to the station effort to raise over one million dollars for children’s cancer research. This is the fourth time in the last six years FOX 8 has been recognized for “Overall Excellence”, including winning the national award in 2013.
