If you won a Regional Murrow Award, and want to celebrate by placing your logo and ad on the Murrow website, or be promoted through RTDNA’s social media platform during the award event, please check out these opportunities to sponsor. We expect an audience of nearly 2,000 to tune in to see who will win the coveted National Awards! This is a chance to be recognized on a national level for the outstanding journalism your team has produced.

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.
