AK wins 2007 Clarion Award

APRN’s weekly statewide radio program — AK — has won yet another national award for the quality of its reporting and storytelling.

This time the Association for Women in Communications has selected AK as its 2007 Clarion Award winner for Radio Regular Feature Program. AK’s honor comes alongside other public radio winners in 2007 such as KCRW in Santa Monica, long-running weekly food show The Splendid Table and top-quality journalism from American RadioWorks.

The 2007 Clarion Award for AK follows last month’s win at the Public Radio News Directors, Inc. (PRNDI) conference in New Orleans, where AK beat out national entries from 35 large-market stations. AK was also the first show in PRNDI history to take the Best News and Public Affairs Program three years in a row — or three years in any order.
