Christopher Connelly
KERA Radio

Judge’s Comments:

Christopher Connelly with KERA clearly stands out. His reports provide calm, comprehensive journalism. He stands out for his unbiased reporting on controversial issues and the context he brings to lighter features. Today’s broadcast journalism often preys on hype or fear; fortunately, Connelly never falls into this trap. You’ll find in-depth, fully-told stories here, not just cursory headlines.
