WMUK earns third straight news documentary award

March 21, 2002

KALAMAZOO -- For the third consecutive year, a documentary produced by WMUK FM, the University's public radio station, has earned honors from the Michigan Associated Press Broadcasters Association.

WMUK earned an honorable mention for "Best News Documentary," a category the station won the previous two years. The station's entry, "A Place to Call Home," featured former WMUK staff member Erin Toner, who now works for WKAR at Michigan State University. The documentary was the second of two pieces funded by a grant from the Kalamazoo Community Foundation.
The award will be presented at the MAPBA annual meeting April 13.
