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 2020 National Murrow Award winners!

More than 800 Regional Murrow Award winners, selected from more than 5,000 entries, along with hundreds of digital, network and student entrants competed  for 2020 National Edward R. Murrow Awards, announced in a world premiere event on October 10, 2020.

We thank you for your patience as we take a little extra time to prepare and execute an exciting, uplifting virtual celebration. Additional thanks to our hundreds of volunteer judges, who have been reviewing a record number of entries all while they’re facing ongoing disruptions due to the demands of current events.

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.
