WRDW-TV congratulates News 12’s Meredith Anderson, winner of the 2013 Regional Edward R. Murrow Award for “Best Writing." Her writing was judged among other journalists from a five-state region in Nielsen television markets 50-plus.

This is the second regional Murrow Award for the News 12 anchor/reporter. In 2011, the RTDNA recognized Anderson for her documentary “Black Market Babies,” which went on to receive a National Edward R. Murrow award for “Best Documentary."

The 2013 Regional Edward R. Murrow awards recognize work of the highest quality produced by radio, television and online news organizations around the world.

"For more than 40 years, the Edward R. Murrow Award has honored the best of electronic journalism," said Mike Cavender, executive director of RTDNA. "This year's winners represent the outstanding work being done in local newsrooms, which we are proud to recognize."

A record number of award entries were submitted, and judges selected winners in 13 regions across the United States and from international entrants across the globe. The regional winners are automatically entered in the national Edward R. Murrow Awards competition, which will be judged during the summer. RTDNA is the world's largest professional organization devoted exclusively to electronic journalism. RTDNA represents local and network journalists in broadcasting, cable and digital media in more than 30 countries.

Meredith Anderson joined WRDW-TV News 12 in January of 2007 and currently anchors and reports for News 12 at 6 o'clock and News 12 at 11 o'clock.
