NEW YORK - KARE 11 reporter Boyd Huppert continues to forge his reputation as one of America's finest journalists after being honored with his ninth and tenth National Edward R. Murrow Awards.
Huppert received top honors in the large market television writing category for a compilation that included three stories: "Neighborhood of Love" (with photojournalist Jonathan Malat), "Nada" (with Malat), and "A Precarious Place" (with photojournalist John Drilling).
Huppert was also recognized, along with photojournalist Jonathan Malat, in the Large Market Video Feature Reporting category, for "Neighborhood of Love". Malat was a Photographer of the Year Finalist in the National Press Photographer's Association in March as well.
"Sharing this kind of award-winning reporting and photography reflects KARE 11's commitment to our community," said John Remes, KARE 11 President and General Manager. "Every day our team of talented, dedicated professionals travels Minnesota and western Wisconsin to bring stories of impact and emotion to KARE 11 viewers, both on-air and online."
The Edward R. Murrow Awards are given annually by the Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA), an organization that has been recognizing the best in broadcast journalism since 1971.
KARE 11 has been awarded 21 National Edward R. Murrow awards since 1994. KARE 11 is owned by Gannett Co., Inc.
