KRCU is Honored
KRCU received first place in the documentary/public affairs category for the station’s production of “The Ghosts of the Mississippi” at the Missouri Broadcasters Association’s Annual Convention and Awards Presentation.
KRCU Producer Jacob McCleland and Southeast Missouri State University History Professor Dr. Joel Rhodes share ghost stories from the Cairo Fire Department, New Madrid and Cape Girardeau.
General Manager Dan Woods says, “Living along the Mississippi River is a great place to be, and it’s a place steeped in history. This production does a great job of sharing some of the stories of our part of the country.”
This year’s award is KRCU’s fourth Missouri Broadcaster’s Award.
McCleland was also heard on NPR stations nationally this spring for his reporting about Mississippi River flooding and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineer’s decision to activate the Birds Point-New Madrid Floodway by breaching the levee.
