NBC10.com is the best large-market television station website in the region, a jury of peers said when voting for the 2015 Edward R. Murrow Awards.
The Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) bestowed the honor Thursday with the announcement of regional Murrow award winners. The website and related mobile apps was selected from among a pool of websites throughout Philadelphia and across Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York. NBC10.com will now compete against 13 other websites for a national Murrow Award.
NBC10's Digital Team has been producing high-quality journalism in collaboration with and independent of the broadcast division for years. Every day, more than 100 pieces of content are produced and presented to millions of viewers in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.
"Each and every day NBC10 through the members of its Digital Team, strives to provide users of its digital products, including NBC10.com and the NBC10 news and weather apps, the very best news, breaking news, investigative reporting and weather," said Yoni Greenbaum, Director of Integrated Media for NBC10 and Telemundo62. "It is particularly gratifying for those efforts to be recognized by RTDNA with the prestigious Murrow Award."
For the past two years, NBC10.com has been re-imagining the local television news website. Digital journalists write daily news stories, produce digital-only videos and execute exclusive, in-depth features and investigations on topics like child sexual abuse, missing persons, immunizations, crime, fire tragedy and quality of life issues.
The NBC10 Digital Team also leads the station's social media efforts highlighting stories being produced for digital and television.
"NBC10 has been producing quality journalism that matters to our viewers on television for years. It's great to see our peers recognize the NBC10 Digital Team for the same excellent work," said Anzio Williams, Vice President of News for NBC10 & Telemundo62.
The national 2015 Edward R. Murrow Awards will be handed out in New York City on October 12.
