Our pals at Channel 8 are doing great things in TV broadcasting.

The station just received two Edward R. Murrow Awards for excellence in journalism.

WQAD brought in a regional award for "Use of VIdeo", which was from a story Andy McKay and Scott Weas did on "Trebuchet" (an egg-throwing competition).

The other award was for sports-related reporting.  Specifically, a story from Shane Simmons and Jacob Nice on bass fishing at Mercer County High School.

It's so cool to see our media friends in the QC getting recognition like this.  Keep up the good work, guys!
