WTAX-AM 1240/FM 107.5 has won an Edward R. Murrow Regional Award for its spot news coverage from the Radio-Television News Directors Association.Wow, I can't think of any Springfield story bigger than that. I'm guessing WMAY was busy covering actual news rather than submitting B-list story coverage to this bunch. But hey, congrats WTAX. You've served your long-ago legacy well.
The station submitted condensed versions of its coverage of a Dec. 19, 2007, plane crash in Sangamon County that killed three men from Calvary Temple. It was judged as the best submission among entries from Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio and will be submitted for an Edward R. Murrow National Award, to be announced in June.

Radio Winners AND Losers
Ummm, OK, but does anyone under 75 years-old listen to this station? I understand about half of their audience dies every week.
