PEORIA, Ill. (WMBD) — The team at WMBD/WYZZ was awarded a regional Murrow Award in the category Excellence in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, for Together We Rise: A WMBD/WYZZ Townhall Special. 

The segment was spearheaded by anchors Shelbey Roberts and Eugene Daniel III.

“Together We Rise was such a needed platform for Central Illinois last summer. It came at a time of pain and re-lived trauma for so many in this country, particularly Black communities,” Roberts said. “It’s humbling to see the program is still being so well-received station-wide, community-wide and now with a Edward R. Murrow award.”
