CORPUS CHRISTI - KRIS-TV and KRISTV.COM is pleased to announce that it has received a Regional Edward R. Murrow award for its Web site.
KRIS Communications President & General Manager, Tim Noble said, "Our Internet Content Director has worked hard over the past year improving KRISTV.COM, which was launched four years ago. "I'm proud of our Internet team's ongoing efforts. It means a lot to receive this prestigious award."
This is the first time KRISTV.COM has won and Regional Edward R. Murrow award for best Web site (small market TV stations in Texas & Oklahoma). KRISTV.COM will go on to compete for the national award to be announced later this year.
To be eligible to compete in the Web site category, KRISTV.COM must disseminate timely news and information targeted for its core audiences. News content must be generated primarily by entrant, supplemented by secondary content provided by wire services or networks. The site should be of practical use to the general public and maximize online technologies to inform and educate the public and enhance public debate about important daily issues. Entries will be judged on depth and quality, content, innovation, use of audio and video, visual design, functionality and interactivity, usability, and story telling techniques.
KRISTV.COM Internet Content Director Jason Crundwell said, "It's an honor to receive this award. Our Web site was up against some tough competition from other stations. This award just reinforces our commitment to local news, weather and sports."
This is the second major award KRISTV.COM has received this year. Earlier this month, KRISTV.COM was honored as "Best Web site" in the small market division from the Texas Associated Press Broadcasters. Both awards will be presented at a banquet in Dallas on April 8.
