A long-form audio story by a UW-River Falls student about attending college under pandemic restrictions has won a first-place award from the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association (WBA).
Ryan Huling, a staff member of the Student Voice campus newspaper, won first place for long form production (non-news) in the 2020 WBA Student Awards for Excellence. Huling is a double major in broad area English education and in stage and screen arts. His hometown is Farmington, Minnesota.
Huling’s 24-minute production, “The Spread and Stipulations,” examined how students at various colleges were experiencing the pandemic in November 2020. The story is available online at bit.ly/sv-spread.
Winners of the annual contest were announced Saturday, March 6, during the WBA’s Student Seminar, which this year was held online. The WBA is a trade association that represents radio and television stations around the state.
