TAB Congratulates Winners of Inaugural Texas Broadcast News Awards

-    More than 400 Entries from Radio and Television Stations

The Texas Broadcast News Awards recognize outstanding local broadcast journalism produced by member Radio and TV stations serving local communities throughout the state and take the place of the Texas Associated Press Broadcast Awards which were discontinued. TAB salutes the AP for their longstanding commitment to advancing quality broadcast journalism!

“Local news is the most trusted journalism in the media ecosystem and TAB is delighted to recognize broadcast stations and journalists throughout the state whose work has earned that trust and helped advance the communities they serve,” said TAB President Oscar Rodriguez.

“We are particularly grateful to the nearly two dozen bilingual broadcast journalists from across the country, practicing and retired, who evaluated the more than 400 entries from commercial and non-commercial stations, a process in which Spanish- and English-language entries were evaluated on an equal footing.”

Broadcasters came together in-person to celebrate the winners on Saturday, April 9 at the Westin Austin at the Domain.
