It’s a big-time breakthrough for a podcast.
ABC News President James Goldston explained. “ABC News Radio has been awarded the Murrow for Excellence in Innovation for our flagship podcast, Start Here, which is a first for us. In addition to bringing in our trusted correspondents for in-depth, flowing conversations, Brad Mielke and the Start Here team feature our behind-the scenes producers and researchers for an added context not heard in traditional newscasts.”
“It’s been a year and four months,” said Brad Mielke. “It’s been more than 300 shows of Start Here every morning….of all the awards we could get, the one for innovation is super exciting and thank you to everyone who’s been supporting the project.”
