David Ford Jun 04, 2018. 0 comments

Last week the southern chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists announced the winners of the 67th Annual Green Eyeshade Awards. FUSION swept first, second, and third place in the documentaries/television category.

“The Naked Truth” team was recognized with the first place award for their documentary “Undocumented on Campus.” The team also took home the second place award for their special report “The Naked Truth: Standing Rock.”

The network’s environmental production team was honored with the third place award for their special “98% Human.” FUSION was also recognized with a third place win in the videography/online or television category for “Bolder.”

The Green Eyeshade Awards are the nation’s oldest regional journalism contest. Since 1950, The Green Eyeshades have recognized the very best journalism in the southeastern United States – which now includes print, television, radio, and online.
