RTDNA presented its 2017 Kaleidoscope Awards at Excellence in Journalism 2017, honoring outstanding journalistic achievements in diversity in the newsroom and in news coverage.
The awards recognize news outlets across the country that showcase excellent coverage of issues such as race, ethnicity, religion and sexual/gender identity. The winning journalists and their news organizations demonstrate significant impact in their communities and reflect the communities they serve.
"From newsroom staffing and source development to story selection and ongoing coverage, our winners demonstrate the value of bringing diverse voices to the table," said RTDNA Chairman Vincent Duffy. "Their efforts inform, educate and strengthen their communities."
RTDNA hopes this year's Kaleidoscope Award winners will inspire journalists in newsrooms across the country to continue their dedication in providing in-depth coverage of diverse communities.
