RTDNA has announced the regional winners of the 2021 Edward R. Murrow Awards. More than 750 awards recognize over 350 local radio and television stations in all 50 states, the District of Columbia and four countries. In addition to 50 Overall Excellence awards, the regional honors recognize dozens of digital projects, more than 40 examples of investigative reporting and over 100 examples of continuing or series coverage of ongoing stories.

"The regional RTDNA Edward R. Murrow Award recipients we announce today produced extraordinary journalism that brought clarity and context to 2020's biggest news stories," said RTDNA Chairwoman Andrea Stahlman. "The winning work demonstrates dedication, determination and a commitment to the highest ethical standards enshrined in RTDNA's Code of Ethics."

In a new category for 2021, more than 40 news outlets earned regional Murrow Awards for Excellence in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, including examples of bilingual reporting, contextual coverage of inequality and discrimination, and newsroom-convened community discussions.

"Local journalists across the country guided Americans through a pandemic, ongoing racial reckoning and a fraught election cycle, despite facing unprecedented operational challenges and an astonishing number of physical attacks during 2020," said RTDNA Executive Director and Chief Operating Officer Dan Shelley. "The persistence of the regional Murrow Award winners we recognize today is a testament to these journalists' commitment to their First Amendment duty."
