Our WRAL family recently won nine awards from the Radio Television Digital News Association of the Carolinas, and one award in particular is very special to us.
We secretly nominated our newsroom boss, Rick Gall, for "News Director the Year," and he won! You can read one of our nomination letters here.
We had a little celebration for Rick this morning, and, in true Rick Gall fashion, he attributed his success to us and the work we do. Such a classy guy.
Please join me in congratulating Rick and the rest of our award-winning crew:
