Murrow Awards for 2014 this past Tuesday, April 22nd, for a local newscast about the Carnival Cruise Ship Triumph being towed to the port of Mobile during the previous calendar year due to a fire that caused its engine to stop functioning (the award made WKRG-TV eligible for one of the national Edward R.
