2003 First Place Radio Broadcast News Winner


In their own words…

“When I got on the plane that Thursday morning, it all seemed impossible. Ten months earlier I told myself that I was going to win the Hearst Journalism Awards. An ambitious goal I hoped would give me just enough motivation to make it through my journalism classes, I never imagined I would actually do it. Our assignment seemed impossible and navigating San Francisco seemed even more daunting. I tried to forget about the deadline and tried to connect to the city and its people. Seven hours later I got back to the hotel. Every single interview on my minidisk seemed like an interview with the president himself. I was so proud and relieved. Our impossible day of getting the story was over and everyone succeed. That was the best reward of the entire competition. Those interviews proved too that nothing was impossible.”
