As NewsChannel 4 prepares to celebrate 65 years in broadcasting, KFOR was honored Friday night for outstanding achievement by the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters.
The judges gave top honors in the “Spot News” category to Bob Moore Chopper 4 Pilot/Reporter Jon Welsh and Photographer Marc Dillard, as well as Anchors Kevin Ogle and Meg Alexander.
The group was honored for coverage of a high-speed chase that endangered lives and property.
Photographer Marc Dillard and Pilot/Reporter Jon Welsh were also honored in the “Spot Photography” category for their unparalleled skills while covering breaking news from Bob Moore Chopper 4.
NewsChannel 4’s 10 p.m. newscast was named “Best Evening Newscast” by the judges.
The particular broadcast that was honored by the judges aired six months to the day after the community of Moore was devastated by a massive tornado.
The 10 p.m. newscast on that night chronicled the recovery and rebuilding of that community.
Anchors Linda Cavanaugh and Kevin Ogle accepted the award, along with Meteorologist Mike Morgan, Director Randy Williams and Executive Producer Natalie Hughes.
