WBZ took home the awards for Breaking News Coverage, Continuing Coverage, and Best Newscast. This is the second year in a row WBZ won the regional awards for Best Newscast and Continuing Coverage.
The Breaking News Coverage award was for WBZ's coverage of the January 6th riots at the U.S. Capitol. The Continuing Coverage award was for WBZ's ongoing coverage of the COVID Pandemic. The Best Newscast award was for the 8 a.m. newscast on Oct. 11, 2021, during the 2021 Boston Marathon.
The Regional Edward R. Murrow Awards honor outstanding achievements in broadcast and digital journalism and recognize local and national news stories that upheld the Radio Television Digital News Association Code of Ethics, show off technical skills, and highlight the importance of journalism as a public service.
With these three wins, WBZ is now under consideration for three National Murrow Awards in the three respective categories.
