“It was a challenging year for newsrooms across the country — both because of the obstacles we had to overcome to work safely and remotely, and because of the pain and struggle that were so present in the stories we told,” said WUNC News Director Brent Wolfe. “These Regional Murrow Awards are a testament to the dedication, talent, and passion of the WUNC news staff. I’m most proud of how many of these awards are the result of collaboration between journalists across our newsroom.”
