It’s nice to be recognized!

The station also won “Public Radio Station of the Year,” a huge honor!

Several pieces related to Detroit’s bankruptcy case and future revitalization were among the entries. The complete list of the station’s honored projects is below. Our partners in the Detroit Journalism Cooperative, Detroit Public Television and Michigan Radio, also received awards in the annual contest.

And now we go back to work. Congratulations to all!
