Sage Sowels wrote on social media: You’re looking at an award-winning journalist! Today, I and our station were presented with two Anson Jones awards from the Texas Medical Association. First place in the short TV news category for a report on COVID Anxiety and Instability in Texas Schools and honorable mention in the In-Depth TV news category for our series about teen mental health!
I’m grateful for the recognition and opportunity to inform the people of East Texas! I couldn’t have made this happen without Perry Elyaderani KNWA (who also won the awards! :)) and everyone at KETK NBC/KFXK FOX51!
