UW-Superior Wins the Most Awards from the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association

Posted on Apr 14, 2008
UW-Superior had more radio news awards from the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association than any other Wisconsin university.

Danielle Kaeding won a first place news series category award for her coverage of local people traveling to Washington D.C. to protest the war in Iraq. Kaeding also won third place for "KUWS Radio News at 9", while Jay Stephenson was awarded second place in the news category for a story about an Ashland domestic violence ordinance. Ben Ranallo won a third place award for coverage of the Superior fire chief's guilty plea for embezzlement.

The Milwaukee Press Club awarded Ranallo, who graduated from UWS in December, a first place in Collegiate Radio Feature for his story "Hunting Traditions", as well as honorable mention place for Best News Story for "Kimmes Construction Tragedy". Kaeding was given an honorable mention for Best Feature on "Cyberbullies".

The Northwest Broadcast News Association which has competition from six upper Midwestern states, awarded UWS students seven awards, more than any other university.

Kaeding won a first place "Best Audio" award for her D.C. War Protest story, while Ranallo won six awards including two first place for Broadcast Writing, Series, two Spot News and two Hard Feature categories.

All three of the reporters worked at Wisconsin Public Radio station KUWS-FM. They have since graduated from UWS, with one getting hired as a Wisconsin Public Radio reporter in Superior. Danielle Kaeding graduated in May, 2007 and continued working as a part time employee until she was hired as an Associate Broadcast Specialist last month. She hosts the morning news on KUWS-FM (91.3 Superior, 102.9 Ashland) and WHSA-FM (89.9 Brule, 104.7 Ashland). Her stories are also heard state wide on Wisconsin Public Radio's two networks.
