Submission for Murrow Award for Continuing Coverage: Blagojevich Trial, Take 2


The corruption trial of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich in 2010 was covered extensively which made it even more difficult to cover the second trial in 2011 in new and interesting ways.  Nonetheless, through newscast spots, features, interviews, conversations, and one musical montage we achieved our goal of keeping the public informed on this important case where much of the news wasn’t all that new.
