KBIA is honored to have won the General Excellence in Online Journalism - Small award in the 2015 Online News Association's Online Journalism Awards.
The award was announced at a banquet in Los Angeles Saturday night at the end of the annual ONA conference. Stephen Thompson, a writer/editor for NPR Music, was one of the hosts of the event. In presenting the award, he read this note from the judges:
"The judges were impressed that a tiny newsroom staffed largely with college students had such a thoughtful and sophisticated website, from data journalism to crowdsourcing to long form feature storytelling this site punched way above its weight. In a category full of excellent entrants this was a real standout."
