WLRN-Miami Herald News has garnered an impressive array of journalism awards nationally and within the Southeast region recently. We decided to share some of this professional recognition we received from our peers with you, our readers.

Below are some of the highlights from March-April:

In the Murrow and AP award competitions, the WLRN-Miami Herald News team was recognized with awards for both “Overall Excellence”and "Best Website."

An Edward R. Murrow Award is the highest honor in radio news. Named after the legendary radio and TV journalist, the awards are presented by the Radio Television Digital News Association and recognize outstanding achievements in journalism.
