NBC-owned WNBC-TV New York City earned 15 regional Emmy Awards, including top Investigative Report for “The Rape Table: Extreme Hazing at Newark Airport.” “They follow the story wherever it leads, ask the questions our viewers want answered and generate change in our local communities,” said News Director Amy Morris.
Also, NBC-owned KXAS-TV Dallas won a Peabody Award for “Big Buses, Bigger Problems: Taxpayers Taken for a Ride.” KXAS exposed questionable real estate deals by the Dallas County Schools involving a school bus camera-system investment.
