Boise State Public Radio News took home two second place awards in the national Public Media Journalists Association's (formerly known as PRNDI) annual contest.

Entries from Boise State Public Radio were judged alongside other public radio stations of similar size: mid-sized newsrooms with four to seven full-time reporters.

 

Reporter and Guns & America correspondent Heath Druzin won second place in the Breaking News category for his October 2019 story on Idaho Senator Jim Risch refusing to talk about controversies surrounding President Donald Trump, despite his position on Capitol Hill as the chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations.

 

The Guns & America collaborative was also honored with two other second-place wins for Collaborative Effort and Multi-Media Presentation.

 

Digital content coordinator Lacey Daley and contributing producer Joel Wayne took second place in the Podcast category for the You Know The Place episode featuring Steele Apiaries, a local honey bee farm. You Know The Place just finished its fifth season since launching in March of 2018.
