KRLD Radio News Team Surrounds Dallas Chemical Fire

In the 2011 Charles E. Green awards competition, this comprehensive developing coverage of a dangerous, raging fire that consumed a Dallas-area chemical plant was tops in the field.  KRLD Assistant News Director Matt Thomas and key reporter L.P. Phillips tell Foundation interviewer Neal Spelce how the story and KRLD’s response built from hour to hour and incident to incident.  This is a textbook on how to get the community the news it needs to hear, accurately and in-depth.
