RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) - The Radio Television Digital News Association has honored the News 4 Fact Finder Team with a National Edward R. Murrow Award for our "Silver State Secrets" investigative series. In April it was announced News 4 won the regional small market award and would compete against winners from 13 other regions.
The series shed light on problems ranging from loopholes in lobbyist reporting requirements, to troubles in obtaining public records, to a lack of transparency in the lawmaking process. Links for our five stories in the series are on the left side of this story.
