Arizona Public Media and KNAU pulled off an impressive sweep in the Small Market Radio category. The Phoenix stations' coverage of President Donald Trump's visit and subsequent protest were also well lauded in the breaking news categories.

“Each year RTDNA is proud to honor the very best in broadcast and digital journalism through the Edward R.
