witf's Multimedia News Department and witf TV were honored by the Pennsylvania Associated Press Broadcasters Association (PAPBA) with 13 awards for excellence in broadcast journalism. PAPBA groups witf in the Medium Market Radio and Medium Market Television Categories. Judging was conducted by the North Carolina Associated Press Broadcasters Association.

witf's initiative StateImpact PA was entered into Major Market and garnered two awards

witf's news department won the Joe Snyder Award for Outstanding News Service, the premier award given by The Pennsylvania Associated Press, for the second year in a row. It's named in memory of the late Joe Snyder, longtime bureau chief of the Pennsylvania AP who was instrumental in founding the PAPBA. It is the third time since 2008 that witf has been recognized with the Joe Snyder Award.

"To be honored for the second year in a row with the Joe Snyder Award for Outstanding News Service is tremendous recognition of the efforts put in by witf's journalists each and every day. I'm proud of their work and committment to ensuring we meet our responsibilities in serving the public," Multimedia News Director Tim Lambert said. "On a personal note, I'm thrilled our special coverage of the Major Richard Winters Leadership Statue in Normandy, France, last June, was recognized in the Feature and Series categories. Thanks to Ephrata National Bank, witf was the only midstate media organization to cover the event from Europe.  I hope the stories we produced did justice to the legacy of Major Winters."
