Denver Post, KUNC lead the prize patrol

Two local news organizations have added baubles to their trophy cases in recent days. The Society of Professional Journalists bestowed its top investigative plaudit upon the Denver Post series "The Battle Within," in which Erin Emergy and David Olinger revealed that many soldiers suffering from significant medical issues are frequently ordered back into battle despite physicians' objections. Meanwhile, KUNC, a public-radio station in Greeley, earned two regional Edward R. Murrow awards -- one in the breaking news category, for coverage of last year's tornado in Windsor, the other in hard news, for a report about registering new Latino voters in advance of the November election. KUNC has a smaller news staff, and fewer resources, than does Colorado Public Radio, but it seems to consistently do more with less. Better luck next year, CPR.
