New Mexico State University’s KRWG Public Media received four awards from the New Mexico Broadcasters Association’s 2019 Excellence in Broadcasting awards.
The awards reflect the outstanding achievement of broadcasters and recognize exceptional news coverage, entertainment and production across four radio markets and one television market.
Director of Content Fred Martino received the award for best website and best legislative coverage, “Las Cruces City Council Supports Bill To Offer Special Liquor Licenses To Boost Economic Development.”
Anchor and reporter for KRWG Radio Anthony Moreno received the award for best feature news story, “How One Small School District Embraces A Challenge For Computer Science Education.” Moreno also received the best award for complete newscast station.
“I’m thrilled to see KRWG Public Media represented in the NM Broadcasters Excellence in Broadcasting awards. It’s validation of the great work our staff does each and every day,” said Adrian Velarde, general manager of KRWG Public Media.
The KRWG staff will accept the awards at the New Mexico Broadcasters Association recognition gala in June.
