The Belmont Vision walked away with four awards from the Tennessee Associated Press on Saturday, including second in Best College Media Website.
Sports broadcast Bruin Blitz– created by senior sports writer Emily Proud– won first place in the Best Online Sports Coverage/Program category. Sports editor Samuel Cowan and editor Riley Wallace received honorable mentions in Best Online Sports Reporting and Best Online Spot Coverage, respectively.
“The Associate Press awards for excellence once again serve as proof our young journalists excel in their chosen field. These awards are judged by working professionals who hold these reporters to the highest standards,” said chair of the media department and former adviser of the Vision Thom Storey.
The Tennessee Associated Press Broadcasters and Media Editors College Contest is an annual competition for college media students throughout the state.
The awards follow several wins at the Southeastern Journalism Conference in February.
