Great examples of why diversity is good news

Every year RTDNA and UNITY give out awards to honor “outstanding television, radio and online journalism focused on diversity.”

“This year, the winning entries go beyond the basics of diversity coverage and truly embrace the concept of community,” said RTDNA chairman Mark Kraham. “These organizations set a high and apt standard of how diversity coverage should be done.”

CNN and CTV News – Prince George’s Community Television were both selected as winners in the television category.

CNN was awarded for the highly recognized “CNN Presents: Latino in America,” and CTV News was honored for its piece “Black, White and Shades of Gray.” 

In the radio category Alabama Public Radio was chosen as a winner for its “Matters of Race” piece, American Public Media was honored for its “Early Lessons” and WBEZ-FM was selected for its compilation of diversity coverage.
