We're excited to announce that WMUK has won two PRNDI local public radio news awards! PRNDI stands for the Public Radio News Directors Incorporated.

The first winning entry was the WestSouthwest show on the e-book We Are One about race in Battle Creek. In the show, WMUK's Gordon Evans interviewed Calhoun Race Impact Alliance Director J.R. Reynolds and Battle Creek Enquirer reporter Justin Hinkley. The show won first place for Best Interview among mid-sized stations.
