WOW!

Alabama Public Radio has been recognized as one of the best in the country with a prestigious Sigma Delta Chi Award! 

This award is given annually by the national Society of Professional Journalist.  Only ten media outlets earn these awards each year, so earning one is quite an accomplishment.

APR earned ours for the outstanding coverage our news team provided of damage caused by the April 27th tornadoes that ravaged Alabama in 2011.   

Congratulations to APR News Director Pat Duggins, Ryan Vasquez, Maggie Martin and Stan Ingold!  It is an honor well deserved.
