For the first time ever, Tri States Public Radio's newsroom has won a National Edward R. Murrow Award from the Radio & Television Digital News Association (RTDNA). This year's award for Use of Sound in Small Market Radio goes to News Director Rich Egger for Audio Postcard from Snake Alley. The piece was originally judged as the best small market entry among public and commercial radio stations in Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and Ohio, and was then considered for the national award after receiving the regional recognition.
The Snake Alley Art Fair in Burlington started 45 years ago with just a few people selling work. They hung their art on snow fence that was set up along what's been called the most crooked street in the world.
This year the fair drew around 100 artists who set up booths not just on Snake Alley but also on the adjacent Heritage Hill streets.
They were joined by musicians, food and drink vendors, and thousands of art lovers looking to connect with a painting or a piece of jewelry or some other work of art.
