Congratulations to On Point! We’re thrilled to share On Point’s latest honors: two wins at the Gracies.
The Alliance for Women in Media Foundation has announced that On Point is being honored with Gracie Awards this year in two different categories.
On Point episodes An Invisible Epidemic: Survivors of domestic violence on living with traumatic brain injury is honored in the Investigative Feature Category and Behind the decades-long fight to close the ‘boyfriend loophole’ won in the Public Affairs category for nationally syndicated non-commercial radio.
Both episodes shine a light on under-reported stories that we at On Point believe are essential to tell. It’s gratifying to be recognized by our peers in journalism and, we think, speaks to the value that On Point brings our listeners.
It’s the second year in a row that On Point has appeared on the Gracie’s list of winners and brings the show’s awards tally to seven (five national, two regional) in just the first two years of its new one-hour-one-topic format, a rare and remarkable achievement.
Since 1951 the Gracies have been recognizing individual achievement and exemplary programming created by, for and about women in news and entertainment.
