News Director Barbara Jean Johnson

WTIP News Department wins awards

When WTIP writes a news story it aims to highlight the human side of the issue in order to illustrate the impact and relevance to the area.  Recently, WTIP’s News Director, Barbara Jean Johnson, received an award for two stories that exemplify that effort. 

Two of WTIP’s pieces received 2009 Minnesota AP Broadcasters Awards: "Battling Extinction with Furry Critters and Chanel No. 5” earned first place in the Series/Special category, and "The Blowdown: A 10 Year Remembrance” received honorable mention in the Documentary/Investigative.
