  • “Colorado Matters” reporter and producer Lesley McClurg’s story “Flood leaves many Colo. immigrants homeless and paperless” won a regional Edward R. Murrow Award for best hard new reporting. It examined the devastating effects of last year’s flooding on Colorado’s immigrant population. 
  • “Colorado Matter” host Ryan Warner and CPR contributor David Hill’s story “Remembering John Denver, the singer who embodied Colorado” took home the regional Edward R. Murrow award for top news documentary. The story featured a retrospective examination of folk-singer John Denver who would have turned 70 last year.

Judged on seven different education stories, The National Education Writers Association awarded Brundin best broadcast beat reporting. Her report “DPS kids get away with death threats, fights and more, teachers say” examining discipline in Denver’s Public Schools placed third in the single-topic/feature category. Other award-winning stories by Brundin include “Students sway to saxophone during ‘silent’ lunch” and “How a student lost and found hope: Dajina Bell,” both receiving a CBA and a National Headliner Award. 
  • The CPR news team also picked up two awards for coverage of “Colorado’s 2013 flooding,” including second place in the breaking news/continuing coverage of a single event category from the National Headliner Awards, and a certificate of merit in best news coverage of a single event from the CBA.

Broncos’ Press Box Named for Saccomano
December 9, 2013, 11:23 am
Filed under: Awards, Denver Broncos

Congratulations to Denver Broncos Vice President of Communications Jim Saccomano, who had the press box at Sports Authority Field named after him in a ceremony Sunday. Saccomano has been with the Broncos for 36 years, and he will retire at the end of this season.

 

Tributes to Saccomano have been offered by many in the media, the latest from Peter King of CNNSI and NBC Sports:

“I think of all the media-relations professionals I’ve worked with in 30 seasons covering the NFL, none has been more professional than Jim Saccamano…. You always knew who Saccamano worked for, but the mark of a good PR guy—I’ve always thought—is he understands those sent to cover the games have pressures on them, too, to come back with unique takes and insight, and he was always prepared to go as close to the line as he could without going over it to help us do our jobs. I’m grateful for the help he’s been to me, and SI, over the years.”
