SAU Students Receive Top Broadcasting Awards


Each year, St. Ambrose Communication students are recognized for their outstanding work in radio and television broadcasting.

This year, four students received first-place honors across two different organizations. Junior Ryan Sandness won first place in the "Newscast" category for "SAU News This Week: November 6, 2020." Junior Logen Howell and sophomore David Meyer placed first in the "Sportscast/Program" category for their Aug. 26, 2020, episode of their sports talk show "Unsportsmanlike Conduct." Both recognitions came from the Midwest Journalists Association's Eric Sevareid Awards.

The Iowa Broadcast News Association awarded senior Haley Rhoads first place in "Sports Coverage" for her feature "SAU Dance Team adjusts to COVID." The SAU Theatre Department also earned a first-place honor. Their radio play "An Enemy of the People" won "Best Radio Drama" from the national Intercollegiate Broadcasting System Awards.
