This year’s National Murrow Awards celebration will be unlike any other. Here’s everything you need to know about the big night:

When will winners be announced?

During the world premiere announcement and celebration on October 10 at 7pm ET. RSVP here if you have not already.


Will winners be announced in advance?

No. For the first time, winners will learn their news alongside the rest of the world on October 10!


How can I get ready for the big night?  

RSVP to access our celebration kit with ways you can strut the virtual red carpet (and be entered to win a one-of-a-kind Murrow-themed reporter backpack for all your on-the-go essentials).


Where can I watch?

The celebration will premiere here. RSVP to get a reminder.


If I win, how can I promote the award?

Review the promotion guidelines and access approved assets here.

For an Oscar-style awards show moment, use our AR backgrounds to record an acceptance speech to your Instagram stories and we’ll add a few favorites to our red carpet gallery.

Do I have to? Nope! Sharing a quick acceptance speech to your social media is encouraged, but not required.


How can I participate during the announcement and celebration?

During the October 10 celebration, our virtual red carpet will feature YOU! Get your camera ready and open up our Facebook and Instagram AR backgrounds to post your:

  • Red carpet look (all out glam or daytime PJs, it’s up to you!)
  • Family pics (whether that’s your pets or your news team watching in a socially distanced newsroom)
  • Reaction videos (because there’s nothing like the moment one of our featured hosts announces that good news) and
  • Acceptance speeches.

Tag @RTDNA.RTDNF on Facebook/Instagram and use the #Murrows2020 hashtag.


What happens after the show?

We’ll send those who have RSVP’d a digital copy of the full winner list immediately following the show, and we’ll post a few highlights of your at-home red carpet photos and videos for everyone to vote on their favorites.

Winning stations will receive one lucite trophy per award to the newsroom by mail.


Give a quick thanks

Thanks to our hundreds of volunteer judges for reviewing a record number of entries all while facing ongoing disruptions due to the demands of current events and to these sponsors for making this celebration possible.
