Public broadcasting well represented in Associated Press news awards

By Saratoga Springs, NY

Mark Scott – New York City public radio station WNYC won top honors Saturday night in the New York State Associated Press Broadcasters Association's annual news awards competition.

WNYC won eight first-place awards to earn the National Public Radio affiliate the Steve Flanders Award, given to the radio station with the most top finishes in the competition for news stories aired during the previous calendar year.

WBFO won the Flanders award last year. Saturday night, WBFO was awarded six special mentions for its news coverage.

WGRZ in Buffalo won two first-place awards in the television news competition.
