Fox 8 and NCJW Fox Defenders Win 2015 Murrow Award

NCJW's FOX 8 DEFENDERS and Shelley Brown have been awarded a Regional Edward R. Murrow Award for the ongoing series with the "Bad Buses" about corrupt car service companies.

The Radio Television Digital News Association has been honoring outstanding achievements in electronic journalism with the Edward R. Murrow Awards since 1971. Murrow’s pursuit of excellence in journalism embodies the spirit of the awards that carry his name. Murrow Award recipients demonstrate the excellence that Edward R. Murrow made a standard for the electronic news profession. Learn more about Edward R. Murrow from a CBS profile and read about his most famous speech.

Through Fox 8 Defenders, NCJW volunteers assist individuals with consumer problems by answering questions and finding solutions. A brochure of  recommendations for common consumer issues has been developed and is available. This award is a great honor for all the volunteers and for founder, Babs Isaacson, who led the Fox 8 Defender volunteers for many years and who passed away this year.
