NEW YORK CITY – Representatives from CBS47 in Fresno accepted a National Edward R. Murrow Award in New York City on Monday night. 

Last year, former CBS47 reporter Joe Moeller, who is now the morning anchor of KSEE24 Sunrise, along with photojournalist Will Butler went down to the southern border to work on a three-part series on the border wall and its goals and consequences.

Watch: ‘The Wall: A 3-Part Series’

CBS47 Digital Executive Producer Troy Pope and former Digital Media Specialist Nick Refuerzo built the online presentation of the story, and Refuerzo made graphics for the story.

Earlier this year, CBS47 and its staff were honored with Regional Edward R. Murrow Awards for “The Wall” and for ‘Project Truce: A Father’s Mission.’

The Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) said, “These pieces exemplify the best of broadcast and digital journalism today.”

According to its website, RTDNA has been honoring outstanding achievements in broadcast and digital journalism with the Edward R. Murrow Awards since 1971.

Murrow’s pursuit of excellence in journalism embodies the spirit of the awards that carry his name. Murrow Award recipients demonstrate the excellence that Edward R. Murrow made a standard for the broadcast news profession. 

On Monday, Moeller, Butler and CBS47 News Director Chad McCollum accepted the award in New York City.
