KUNC reporter Scott Franz took top honors in the Best News Feature, Report or Series category for a feature on West Slope residents feeling the pinch of high health insurance costs. Reporter Luke Runyon received a certificate of merit in the same category for his story looking at the impacts on water quality after last year's devastating fires.
