NAZ TODAY TEAM WINS BEST NEWSCAST AWARD FROM BROADCAST EDUCATION ASSOCIATION
Brian Rackham reported that students Tori Clark, Liam Combs, and recent graduate Hanna Ware were named in the award, along with the entire NAZ Today Staff. The Newscast aired on April 20, 2022, during team coverage of the Tunnel and Haywire fires that destroyed a number of homes. “Our students responded to the call to help with breaking news, and put together a remarkable effort when the community needed information. Todd Birch and I are very proud of them,” said Rackham.
Also this year, NAZ today sports student Lena Zaubser, an exchange student from Germany, will be given an award of excellence for a piece on NAU Volleyball.
