Vermont Public Radio has been honored with a 2013 Gracie Award®. Upper Valley and Northeast Kingdom Reporter Charlotte Albright was recognized in the outstanding hard news feature category for her story, http://www.vpr.net/news_detail/96541/female-veterans-share-experiences-at-new-womens-ce/
The Gracies are presented by the Alliance For Women In Media and honor outstanding national and local work "created for women, by women and about women, as well as individuals who have made exemplary contributions to the industry."
The Comprehensive Care Center for Women at the VA Hospital in White River Junction was fairly new last fall when Albright decided to profile the center. In doing so, she discovered there were some compelling stories to tell about the women who were using the new center.
“Broadcast journalism is at its best when it tells the rich, compelling but unexpected stories,” said Director Of News Ross Sneyd. “Charlotte did just that in this Veterans Day feature and we're proud that her innovative approach was recognized by the Gracie Awards judges.”
The Gracie Awards are presented by the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation, for excellence in programming created for women, by women and about women. The Gracies strive to encourage the realistic and faceted portrayal of women in entertainment, commercials, news, features and other programs.
