The tradition of excellence at WGLT continues, as the staff captured two regional Edward R. Murrow Awards for broadcast excellence earlier this year. The public radio station licensed to Illinois State has received 20 of the prestigious Murrow awards since 2005.

The recent honor was in the category of Best News Series for the “Since 9/11” program. Staff members looked at how Central Illinois has reacted over the past 10 years to the terrorist attacks of 2001. Charlie Schlenker was also honored with a Best Writing Category win.

In addition, the station won four awards for broadcast excellence from the Illinois Associated Press. GLT competed in the regional category that includes Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan.
