Bales tabbed for AP award
The Colorado Associated Press has recognized Steamboat Springs broadcast journalist Michelle Bales for producing the second best newscast among small market radio stations in the state last year.
Bales is the news director for three local radio stations: KFMU, KRMR and KIDN. Her newscast was judged against those from radio stations in small cities such as Glenwood Springs and Frisco. Durango's KIQX won the top prize for its newscast.
The AP requires contest entrants to submit tapes from newscast aired on specific dates. The contest is judged by broadcast journalists from another state.
The broadcast that earned Bales second place was taped Nov. 29, 2001. It included pieces she wrote about the Thomas Lee Johnson murder case and the beginning of the Steamboat ski season.
