WMUK won two first-place awards for work produced in 2021.
WMUK has won two first-place awards from the Public Media Journalists Association (PMJA).
The 2022 awards were announced in late June. WMUK won first place in the Division C Collaborative Effort category, for a three-part series produced with MLive/the Kalamazoo Gazette. The stories reported on the promise and limitations of a new approach to fighting homelessness in Kalamazoo.
A story by WMUK intern Jalen Williams won best feature in the student category.
In December, our audience heard of the effort to get headstones for Union veterans of the Civil War, including an African-American soldier buried in Vicksburg.
