GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. — KARE 11 is once again honored to be recognized by the Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) with 11 Regional Edward R. Murrow Awards for the station's reporting in the 2021 calendar year.

For the eighth year in a row, KARE 11 was awarded for Overall Excellence, an honor which recognizes a television station's broadcast and digital news accomplishments in the previous year.

“It’s fantastic recognition of the passion and excellence our entire staff brings to work every day,” said KARE 11 News Director Stacey Nogy.

KARE 11 News at 10 p.m. also won the Murrow Award for Newscast, in recognition of the news team's coverage of the verdict in the trial of former MPD officer Derek Chauvin in the murder of George Floyd.

In addition, KARE 11 received several awards for reporting produced by the KARE 11 Investigates team for their ongoing investigations, Cruel and Unusual and The GAP.

RTDNA also awarded the station with multiple honors for work produced by KARE 11's Boyd Huppert.

“KARE 11 and TEGNA are particularly proud of Boyd Huppert, who in the midst of a difficult cancer battle, continues to prove he is among the very best storytellers in the country," said Nogy and KARE 11 President/General Manager Bill Dallman.
