WEIU-TV News Watch wins 2nd straight regional award

May 3, 2013

For the second year in a row, WEIU-TV News Watch has been named the top college TV newscast in a three-state area.  Eastern’s student-produced TV newscast won the Region 5 Mark of Excellence Award for Best College TV Newscast from the Society of Professional Journalists.   It means the WEIU newscast was recognized as the top college newscast in Illinois, Indiana, and Kentucky.  The award was presented last weekend at the SPJ Spring conference in St. Louis.  Regional award winners are eligible for the National Mark of Excellence competition.  The national award will be announced later this year in California.  Last year Eastern finished 2nd in the national judging.  It’s the latest in a long line of awards for WEIU-TV News Watch, which is Eastern’s 30-minute student produced local newscast.  The program airs from 5:30 to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
