Broadcast and digital journalism senior Moriah Humiston took first place in the Hearst Journalism Awards Program Television Features competition. Humiston will receive $3,000 and qualifies for the National Television Championship in May.

“I was so excited—and honestly overwhelmed— when I found out that I had won,” says Humiston. “It would not have been possible without the guidance of Professor Les Rose and Dean Lodato for the past few months. I feel incredibly lucky and honored that I am able to represent Newhouse and Syracuse University through this award.”

Broadcast and digital journalism senior Ghael Fobes placed seventh in the competition. Syracuse University is currently ranked first in the Intercollegiate Broadcast Competition with the highest accumulated student points from the first of three broadcast competitions.

Congratulations, winners!
