Both KXAN Austin, Texas, and KING Seattle have made investigative journalism the foundation of their branding. But what about the reporters who do the leg work? What’s their take on the stations’ branding?
“This award is for the entire station — the result of KING 5’s dedication to investigative journalism. I’m thrilled to be bringing this back to Seattle,” said Susannah Frame, KING’s investigative reporter after accepting the award.
KING’s investigative series into the state of special education in Washington was recognized with an award for excellence in reporting on disability. KING is the first television station to be recognized by the Ruderman Award contest. “To be the only news station to ever win this award is a huge honor for our entire team,” said Cheryl Carson. KING’s news director.
