KXTV’s Teacher Series Wins State Teachers Award

KXTV, Tegna’s ABC affiliate in Sacramento, Calif., earned the highest honor given by the California Teachers Association’s (CTA) for its Teacher of the Month campaign.

The John Swett Award honors excellence in education reporting and this is the fourth consecutive year KXTV has been its recipient.

The awards honor individuals, publications, websites, television and radio stations for their outstanding achievements in reporting and interpreting public education issues.

“The John Swett Award reflects our commitment to quality journalism and our support of this community’s educators,” said Risa Omega, KXTV’s general manager.

NOTE: I graduated college wanting to be a high school English teacher, but life had other plans. So I’m partial to TV stations that focus on the great work teachers do every day.

One of the best community projects that spotlighted teachers was the Golden Apple Awards sponsored by WINK in Ft. Myers. Here are some videos we created around the Golden Apple Awards.
