CBC Radio wins broadcaster of the year

With an impressive two Gold, four Silver and five Bronze World Medals, CBC Radio was named “broadcaster of the year” for the second year in a row at the New York Festivals Radio Broadcasting awards gala. “Opening the Gates of Heaven,” a documentary by Bob Carty that features adopted Canadians looking to reunite with their birth families, and “Jody’s War (Dispatches),” an in-depth exploration of one Canadian soldier’s journey from war-torn Afghanistan to becoming a disabled citizen, were among the winning entries.
