KSL NewsRadio Employees win Gracie Award
Mar 31, 2023
SALT LAKE CITY— KSL NewsRadio host Debbie Dujanovic and producer Caitlyn Johnston have been recognized by the Alliance for Women in Media Foundation (AWMF) as a 2023 Gracie Award winner. Their radio special, “Genetics and Genealogy: How to use testing and family history to decode your risk for cancer” won for “Best Interview Feature -Talk” in the local radio category.
The Alliance for Women in Media was formed in 1951. In 1975 it began an annual award program, later renamed The Gracies, to recognize people in the media that represent the changing roles, issues, and concerns of women.
The KSL special, which aired in April 2022 on KSL NewsRadio, follows twin sisters Emma and Gabriella Friel who tested positive for the breast cancer gene BRCA1. With no action, doctors told them they had an 85% chance of developing breast cancer in their lifetime. In February 2022, both women admitted themselves to the same hospital, on the same day, to undergo double mastectomies. On the day of surgery the women were just 24-years old.
More information, as well as full audio from the special, can be found on the station website at https://kslnewsradio.com/?p=1996385
