KCCU Claims National Broadcasting Award

LAWTON Okla_ KCCU, Cameron University's public radio station, was honored recently with an award from Public Radio News Directors Incorporated (PRNDI), a national association of news department leaders at public radio stations across the country. 

KCCU reporter and Cameron alumnus Mitch Watson was honored with a second place award for Best Multimedia Presentation for "The Two-Wheelin' Reporter," a series of stories about low-cost locales suitable for family vacations.  The category emphasized not only the stories produced for broadcast, but other media involved with the project as well, such as a website and photo galleries.

"This award represents hard work and a commitment to excellence on the part of the KCCU news staff," says Clinton Wieden, KCCU news director. "It's an honor to receive a PRNDI award. This recognition speaks to the quality of work done on the series. We're all very proud of what Mitch was able to do on this project."

A native of Garden City, Kan., Watson has received multiple state and regional awards for his reporting in recent years. The PRNDI award marks his first national honor. He graduated cum laude in May 2012 with a bachelor's degree in communication and is currently pursuing a Master of Education degree at Cameron.

The highly competitive PRNDI awards are open to member stations from around the nation and represent one of the highest honors in public radio journalism. KCCU previously won PRNDI awards for work completed in 2009 and 2010.

KCCU is a non-commercial educational station licensed to Cameron University in Lawton. The KCCU network includes radio stations in Ardmore, Altus, Chickasha, Clinton, Lawton, Woodward and Wichita Falls, Texas.
