St. Lawrence News


North Country Public Radio's David Sommerstein is the recipient of a 2008 National Edward R. Murrow Award for journalism excellence from the Radio-Television News Directors Association. His three-part report, "Farm to Farm, Family to Family," was judged Best News Series by a small-market station.

The series explores the migration of Mexican and Central American farm workers in and out of rural communities of New York, how migrants are affecting rural communities and what the future may hold. In all, 54 news organizations were honored with 77 awards out of an initial pool of 3,459 entries from several hundred news organizations, commercial and non-commercial.

Sommerstein's series was honored with a Regional Murrow Award for Best News Series in April, as well as Best News Series and Best Enterprise Reporting from the Associated Press in June.
