KPLC-TV Wins NAMI National's Outstanding Media Award
Robin Daugereau, Programming and Marketing Director, for local NBC Affiliate, KPLC-TV, Channel 7, gratefully accepted the NAMI National Outstanding Media Award for Public Service, during the closing banquet of the NAMI National Convention, held July, 2009 in San Francisco, CA.
NAMI SWLA nominated KPLC for this national award for their media sponsorship of the annual NAMI Walk, mental health public service announcements, and their month-long series, “The Mental Connection.” The series featured interviews of professionals as well as first person interviews broadcast on television and featured on a special web page online. KPLC-TV also holds the honor of being the first local television station to be presented with this award. Previous honors were given only to national media, such as CBS, The Wall Street Journal, PBS, and CNN, to name a few.
Congratulations, KPLC, and thank you for your continued coverage and support of NAMI and the needs of the Southwest Louisiana community.
