Many amazing students graduated from King’s this year, but no story touched us like the journey of Evan Higgins.

What can we say? We’re winners. The Society for Professional Journalists granted us the Mark of Excellence award for Best All-Around Newscast for The News at 5 and Matt Mezzacapo won for his story “Take Back the Night” in the field of Radio News Reporting. Contests are a testament to our students’ devotion to the art of writing and reporting. SPJ contests feature a slew of esteemed colleges and universities in Region One and we snagged two awards.

Pete & Marissa Phillips are not married, but they do host a “family” show on WRKC Wednesdays at 7:00 PM. They became friends who had the same last name many years ago, then took their occasionally witty banter to the airwaves in between half-hour sets of music. The show is known for its many theme shows, like ones related to holidays, dance party shows the first week of every month, and their most attractive and delicious annual event: The Free Cupcake show. Though Pete & Marissa can’t put a finger on the type of music they play, it’s modern and seemingly enjoyed by tens of people each week.
