KNAU’s “Poverty with a View” news series, exploring the gaps between housing prices and income in the Mountain West, won an Award for Creative Excellence from the Public Radio Program Directors Association.

“It is rich and deep and interesting and compelling and damn fine journalism,” said the judges, also calling it amazing work.

“This entry clearly demonstrates that even smaller stations, with smaller staffs and budgets, can produce stellar quality journalism by simply focusing on what is most important, achievable and meaningful.”
