"Tired Truckers'" series nets investigative reporting award for KOAM
An examination of tired truckers earned KOAM top honors in the investigative reporting category at the annual Missouri Broadcasters Association Awards presented Saturday.
KOAM also won first place in "news series" for "Lost Legacy" and won a certificate of merit (second place) for its "Country Tonight" commercial.
Two other Joplin broadcasting outlets won MBA awards.
KODE received a certificate of merit in sports for The Locker Room" and KZRG Radio earned one for its ice storm coverage.
It would be great if KOAM could place links to its award-winning coverage on its website.
