The Radio Television Digital News Association has announced the 2012 National Edward R. Murrow Award winners. The awards honor excellence in electronic journalism.  WUFT-FM’s Steven Gallo was named the national winner in the radio small market audio news reporting category.  Gallo, who has hosted Morning Edition newscasts and the Front Page Edition of All Things Considered, as well as reported for Florida’s 89.1, is a senior at the University of Florida’s College of Journalism and Communications.  He is only the second UF student to win a national Murrow award, which is an open competition for all broadcast/electronic journalists, and is not a student or university only competition.  The Murrow awards will be awarded in New York City this fall.
