ABC 57 News earns Edward R. Murrow Award

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -  ABC 57 News and Weigel Broadcasting are proud to be awarded the Regional Edward R. Murrow award for feature reporting. The Radio Television Digital News Association announced award winners on April 23, 2015.

ABC 57 News won the award for this story: Making Picture Perfect Memories.

The story profiles the journey of a Michiana mother who decided to have her child Joshua, despite him being diagnosed with a rare chromosomal disorder, and knowing that his life wouldn't last very long.

Former anchor Kim Chappell and Executive Producer Kyle Fobe put together the story and aired it in a 2-day special report starting last Mother's Day.

The same story also won an Emmy for Feature Report last November.

Kim, Kyle, and the rest of the ABC 57 News team is now automatically in the running for a National Murrow.

Those awards will be announced in June.
