Thursday, October 27, 2005

MicrophoneKVSC-88.1FM's news and sports departments took several awards at this year's Midwest Journalism Conference.

  • Minnesota Associated Press Broadcast Awards
    Chad Roberts took first place with "Swisshelm Plaque" in the series/special category. Jill Gierke won honorable mention in spot news with her story on the Wetterling Walker First Amendment Forum. In sports reporting, Curt Carstensen and John Hadden placed first with their series, "Husky Sports Friday," and Carstensen took an honorable mention for his profile of player Matt Siegle.
  • Society of Professional Journalism Mark of Excellence Awards
    Roberts took first place in spot news with a story on the Swisshelm Plaque, a win that automatically advances his entry to national competition. Gierke won second place in the same category with her story, "Hometown Proud Calendar."

KVSC, the university's student-run radio station, competes with commercial and non-commercial broadcasters in the category for stations with one or no full-time newsroom employees.
