Congrats to WOSU 89.7 Radio reporter Mandie Trimble and anchor Steve Brown for their recognition at the annual Ohio Associated Press Awards. Mandie captured first place for investigative reporting for her series of reports on the Columbus Blue Jackets Bailout. Steve won a second place award for best anchor in Ohio. WOSU also learned yesterday that it has been nominated for eight regional Emmy Awards for programming including the Columbus Neighborhood documentary series, ArtZine and our Chefs in the City broadcast.
These awards are important to WOSU not only to give recognition to our talented staff, but because it reflects the quality of our work against our peers in the state and region and often assists in gaining local support for more local programming. We’re very proud!
