88.5 WFDD was honored recently with 5 national awards by Public Radio News Directors Incorporated (PRNDI).
WFDD won a first place award in the News Feature category for David Ford’s story “Business 40 Changing Lanes: A Painful Legacy.” The station also received second place honors in the Enterprise/Investigative, Arts, and Series categories. Additionally, the work of former WFDD intern and Wake Forest student Mankaprr Conteh was recognized for her story “Carolina Curious: How Field Trips Level The Playing Field.”
“There has been a lot of growth in WFDD’s news department over the past several years, with more staff and more training, allowing us to really tell stories in a whole new way,” says News Director Emily McCord. “That’s why it’s especially exciting to have our work acknowledged by our peers in the public media industry.”
The PRNDI awards celebrate the work of reporting, editing, anchoring and producing at local public media radio stations across the U.S.
