KSAT 12 is honored to be recognized by the Texas Association of Broadcasters for our continued reporting on Uvalde.

KSAT was awarded Best Multimedia/Digital Storytelling at the Texas Association of Broadcasters’ Texas Broadcast News Awards on Saturday, April 13, in Austin.

The award celebrates a station’s innovative, valuable, and informational work in the digital space. KSAT12 was honored to win this award for the digital project, “One Year In: Uvalde.”

This project was dedicated to telling the story of the Uvalde community one year after a tragedy changed its identity forever. KSAT 12 interviewed survivors and families of victims from the Robb Elementary School shooting as well as policymakers and residents.

KSAT 12′s mission every day is to be entrenched in our community, from citywide events and listening to residents’ voices and concerns through our “Know My Neighborhood” reporting to being in the community and working to bring innovative and impactful content to our viewers.
