Click onto https://soundcloud.com/user-744545581/kdnk-series to listen to the 3 part documentary series that KDNK did. We know so much more now than we did then but they did a wonderful job of investigative reporting on her case with what was available at that time. If you haven’t listened to it before it’s worth taking the time to listen now. It even has some clips from the 911 calls in it – my heart races and I start to cry every time I listen to it, and remember what it was like back then. Ed Williams has interviews with experts in their field about our daughter Morgan’s case and it is worth listening to.
The Radio Television Digital News Association announced the winners of the 2013 Regional Edward R. Murrow Awards. The awards recognize work of the highest quality produced by radio, television and online news organizations around the world.
KDNK Community Radio in Carbondale won the award for “Best News Series” in Small Market Radio for Region 3, which is comprised of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming.
The series, titled “What Happened to Morgan Ingram?” was produced by Ed Williams and Eric Skalac, KDNK’s full time reporters. “For more than 40 years, the Edward R. Murrow Award has honored the best of electronic journalism,” said Mike Cavender, Executive Director of RTDNA. “This year’s winners represent the outstanding work being done in local newsrooms, which we are proud to recognize.”
“I am proud of our news efforts. It’s wonderful to be recognized for the work in the news department.
