The professionals won big, too.  The Associated Press presented statewide awards at the same event.  WSIU-FM was named the Best Radio Newscast - Downstate.
Many of our grads were also honored as stations they work for throughout the state took home honors.  WSIL-3, where many of our grads are working, was honored with numerous awards.
Congratulations to our RTD students who are recognized nationwide as top notch!  
A big congratulations also to my newsroom team members Joey Helleny and Eileen Waldron and to the faculty and professional staff members who help guide these students to success.
