KSBW-TV, Hearst Television honored for commitment to political coverage

Action News and KSBW’s parent company Hearst Television have been honored again with the USC Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Television Political Journalism.

It’s the 10th consecutive Hearst Television has received the award in the Station Group category.

The award recognizes the work of KSBW-TV and the other Hearst Television stations around the country in covering the 2018 campaign and election season. This latest recognition continues Hearst Television’s unbroken string of USC Cronkite honors since the award’s inception.

In supporting their choice, Cronkite judges cited the “wide coverage of issues” and the “reliable presence on the campaign trail” by Hearst television journalists.

“The Cronkite Award recognizes the efforts of television journalists – like the people of KSBW 8 – who go that extra mile to ensure our Central Coast communities are informed with deep and accurate information about the decisions of their elected representatives,” said Joseph W. Heston, president and general manager of KSBW 8. “This award is an incredible honor, but the fact is, our local political reporting, candidate profiles for key races, and political interviews, all made compelling and engaging local television. That’s why our news team does the work that we do.”

The award is given biennially by the USC Annenberg School of Communication and Journalism, and named for legendary CBS News anchor Walter Cronkite, who presented the first award in 2001.
