It’s an honor to announce that Truth and Lies: Jeffrey Epstein is the winner of the 2021 Edward R. Murrow Award for Network Radio Investigative Reporting!
This is one of journalism’s most coveted awards and, to my knowledge, just the second time that ABC News Radio has ever been awarded a National Edward R. Murrow Award for investigative reporting.
There are so many people to thank for their work on this project, so here goes:
A huge thanks to the incredible journalists within ABC News’ Investigative Unit, including James Hill, Cindy Galli, Chris Vlasto, Pete Madden, Chris Francescani, Kaitlyn Folmer, Emily Ruchalski, Halley Freger, and more.
Thanks to our legal and standards team, which included Betsy Shorr and Maria MatasarPadilla, who poured over our scripts to ensure our reporting stood on a solid foundation and was supported by the facts.
Thanks to our contributing financial reporters Tom Volscho and Roddy Boyd who helped break new ground on Jeffrey Epstein’s mysterious financial history and how he came to be so wealthy.
Thanks to Evan Viola, whose imaginative and moving score helped bring our episodes to life.
Thanks to producer Kate McAullife who took command of hundreds of hours of audio interviews and ensured only the best material made the final episodes.
And finally, a huge thank you to the incredibly brave and strong women who came forward to share their stories with us. This story could not have been told without them.
It’s such an honor to receive this award and my apologies if I missed anyone.
Overall, ABC News won an impressive nine National Edward R. Murrow Awards (five of those for ABC News Radio).
Next, is the Edward R. Murrow Awards Gala in New York on Oct. 27th!
