News 12 Networks and Cheddar News Score More Awards with Multiple Recognitions this Month

News 12 Networks and Cheddar News have once again been recognized for excellence in storytelling and news coverage, with each network scoring multiple award wins this month.  

News 12 was awarded three Regional Edward R. Murrow Awards, which recognize the best in radio, television, and digital journalism. Regional Edward R. Murrow Award winners will automatically advance to compete in the national Edward R. Murrow awards competition, which will be announced later this year.
