St Petersburg's WTSP-Ch. 10 wins national Edward R. Murrow award
St. Petersburg CBS affiliate WTSP-Ch. 10 has won a national Edward R. Murrow Award from the Radio and Television Digital News Association for a report on the danger posed by soccer goals improperly anchored to the ground.
The story, by reporter Noah Pransky, opens with the tale of a soccer standout from Lake Wales High School killed when he climbed a soccer goal to fix the net and it toppled over. Pransky’s story said 37 youths have been killed since 1979 in similar circumstances, though few are aware of the danger.
The RTDNA announced the award among 94 honors, in radio, online, national TV news and local TV categories. See the full list here.
