WNEW was the proud recipient of three awards at the Chesapeake Associated Press Broadcasters Association, held this past weekend in Ocean City.

Reporter Kevin Patrick’s “Firefight” series focused on the battle raging between home builders and firefighters over the cost of installing sprinklers in new construction and the surprising number of deaths that could be prevented each year.

It won the “Outstanding News Series” award.

On the morning of Thursday, August 1, 2013, WNEW covered NSA Leaker Edward Snowden leaving a Moscow airport as he was granted asylum, the beginning of the Ariel Castro sentencing for holding three young women prisoner in his Cleveland home, local police hunting for a serial ‘groper’ on the loose with possible copycat attacks, a local woman’s disappearance in the middle of the night, leaving her family frantic and police baffled, a ground beef recall, concerns about concussions for kids, the battle for same-sex marriage rights in Virginia, and, to top it all off, a midnight showing of “Sharknado.”

In less than half an hour, listeners got immediate local news, urgent national news, breaking world news, forward-looking financial news, real-time sports updates and information to prepare for that evening’s stormy weather. The segment won for “Outstanding Newscast.”
