Montana Broadcaster's Association E.B. Craney Awards

2014 - Commercial Television "Newscast of the Year"
Awarded "Newscast of the Year" from the Montana Broadcaster's Association for our 5:30 p.m. newscast I produced on Thursday, March 6, 2014. The town of Livingston declared a state of emergency and was ordered to evacuate, flooding was also a major concern in Yellowstone County, a Billings murder suspect changes his plea and admits to killing his wife's boyfriend and we took an in-depth look at an active white supremacy group in Billings with a long and local history. It was a great team effort that day.
