The KSIB Radio news team was honored at the Iowa Broadcast News Association annual convention.
News Reporter Terri Queck-Matzie took home three awards in the IBNA News Excellence Awards contest. She garnered first place recognition in the features category for “Call Denny – Creston Chamber of Commerce Citizen of the Year Denny Abel,” and second place in farm and agribusiness for “Trichomoniasis Threat.” Queck-Matzie also received second place honors in the series category for her three-part series on the 2013 “Creston Hall of Fame.”
The event was held in Cedar Rapids May 3. Keynote speaker for the evening awards banquet was Judy Woodruff, co-anchor and managing editor of the PBS News Hour, who also moderated an afternoon debate between the five Republican candidates for the Iowa seat in the U.S. Senate.
Queck-Matzie has been a part of the KSIB news team since 2010. The IBNA works to support and improve electronic media news throughout Iowa and surrounding states.
