BOSTON (WPRI) — The 12 News team took home two wins at the 46th Annual New England Emmy Awards on Saturday.
12 News was nominated for nine awards this year under various categories including best newscast, investigative, and politics.
Both the morning and evening newscasts won for coverage of a standoff in Providence in February 2022.
Police said “hundreds of rounds” were fired between officers and the suspect, who died as a result. You can watch that story here.
This marks back-to-back wins for the morning newscast, which took home an award last year for coverage of Hurricane Ida.
“These latest honors reinforce the level of commitment we’re achieving while covering our community through our in-depth reporting and coverage of important issues that impact people’s lives,” 12 News Director Karen Rezendes said. “I am immensely proud of our team for their hard work each and every morning, noon and night.”
The Emmy wins come on the heels of 12 News winning five awards at the Regional 2023 Edward R. Murrow Awards in May, including one for overall excellence.
