LKSD Media Ready Student Work Receives Journalism Award

This is the image for the news article titled LKSD Media Ready Student Work Receives Journalism AwardThis past weekend, the Alaska Press Club hosted its annual conference and awards. KYUK received 1st place for Best Sports Reporting in Radio for their collaborative news piece, "Cross Country Girls and Boys Head to State Finals." This piece was created by our very own Media Ready students through their KYUK internships last semester, under the guidance of a KYUK reporter.

This is a really big deal! This was not a student contest, it is a state-wide professional press award. It means that their piece beat every professional radio sports news piece from all of the news outlets across the state in 2016! 
Student interns were highly involved in the creation of this piece: they conducted the interviews at the race start, recorded support audio, and took all of the photographs. They wrote the script with guidance from Adrian Wagner, a KYUK reporter. Second year intern Jackie Williams provided the voice narration for the story.
