The Radio Television Digital News Association announced last week that KCCI Channel 8 is the recipient of a 2014 regional Edward R. Murrow award. The station was honored in the continuing coverage category for its coverage of the kidnapping of two girls in Dayton. Regional winners automatically advance to the Edward R. Murrow Awards national competition, which will be judged in May. National awards, including those for network news organizations, will be presented at the New York Marriott Marquis in New York City on Oct. 6.
