KUT and StateImpact Texas Win Murrow Award for Drought Coverage

We’re excited to announce today that our lead radio station, KUT Austin, has received a National Edward R. Murrow Award for continuing coverage of the Texas drought. One of our StateImpact Texas reports on how hunters have fared during the drought is part of the award. So a shout-out is in order to our own Mose Buchele for that story, and another to StateImpact Texas editor Emily Donahue for her piece on a rancher going hungry to keep her horses fed during the drought. And congrats to all our colleagues at KUT.

You can listen to all of the radio reports that won the award for best ‘Audio Continuing Coverage’ in the embedded player above.

And it goes without saying that such stories wouldn’t exist in the first place without you, our readers and listeners, especially the many of you that have shared your stories of the drought with us.
