RTDNA has been honoring outstanding achievements in electronic journalism with these awards since 1971. The CBS News legend’s pursuit of excellence embodies the spirit of the awards that carry his name.

Congratulations to the 2021 National Murrow Award winners!

More than 5,200 entries from hundreds of digital and broadcast network journalism organizations competed for the 2021 National Edward R. Murrow Awards. The 120+ national winners will be honored at the Edward R. Murrow Awards Gala on Oct. 27, 2021, in New York City.

We hope to see as many winners as possible there to celebrate the best in broadcast and digital journalism, especially considering all of the challenges presented by the previous year.

RTDNA is closely monitoring developments with COVID-19 and the spread of the Delta variant. We will require all guests to show proof of a negative test within 72 hours of the Gala AND proof of COVID-19 vaccination. People who cannot show proof of a negative test and proof of vaccination will not be admitted to the event. Click here for more details. 

Through the Edward R. Murrow Awards, the Radio Television Digital News Association & Foundation honor their incredible journalism and strive to show both journalists and the public that quality, credible and impactful journalism is being created at all levels.

We can do so much more with your help. Your generous gift allows us to continue our important work as an association and foundation: providing education around the country to empower more journalists with the tools they need to be successful, awarding scholarships and fellowships to help grow and strengthen the next generation of journalists, and advocating for journalism, the First Amendment, and a free and vibrant press at all levels.
