CBC's Calgary Eyeopener picks up national broadcast awards
CBC Calgary picked up multiple regional awards in April for flood coverage, outstanding projects
The team behind one of Calgary's favourite morning shows picked up two national radio broadcasting awards Saturday night in Toronto.
The Calgary Eyeopener won the national Gordon Sinclair Award in the live special events category for its 2013 flood show, which was broadcast live during the early hours of the disaster from CBC Calgary's emergency newsroom at SAIT Polytechnic.
The team, along with the entire CBC Calgary staff, was forced from their newsroom on the banks of the Bow River when the floodwaters hit.
The show's director, Paul Karchut, also won the national large market radio sports award for his piece on biathlete Megan Imrie.
