The University of Mississippi’s Meek School of Journalism and New Media students won 10 college journalism awards Saturday night at the Mississippi Associated Press Broadcasters banquet at the Capital Club in Jackson. In addition, recent Meek School graduates took home top honors in several categories, and an Ole Miss alumnus was inducted into the Mississippi Broadcasters Hall of Fame.

NewsWatch 99 took home six awards, including first place in College TV Newscasts. This is the fourth year in a row NewsWatch has won the award and the second year in a row it has taken first and second place in the newscast category. Rebel Radio won three awards, with Ferderica Cobb winning first place in News Reporting and a scholarship from the MAPB. The documentary “Casinos in Mississippi: Worth the Gamble?” — produced in a course taught by Dr. Brad Schultz and Dr. Kathleen Wickham — won first place in Student TV Documentary.

In the professional, large market category for TV Documentary, alumnus Joe Doolittle (who produces under the name Joe Smiley), took home a first place award.  Margaret Ann Morgan and Gerard Manogin, both 2013 Meek school graduates, won in three prestigious professional categories: Morgan for Best Public Affairs Reporting and Best TV Reporter in a small to medium market, and Manogin for Best TV Newscast in a large market.

Ryan Moore, a 2009 journalism graduate, won first place for TV News Videographer.

Ole Miss marketing graduate Wilson Stribling was inducted into the Mississippi Broadcast Hall of Fame. Stribling has been a reporter and anchor at WLBT Jackson for 17 years.

Dr. Nancy Dupont and Roy Frostenson, assistant director of Student Media for radio and advertising, accompanied the students to Jackson. Dupont is on the board of MAPB and served as chair in 2013.
