NBC’s WTWO-TV2 was honored recently at the 26th Annual Spectrum Awards presented by the Indiana Broadcasters Association.  

The station picked up the first-place award in the categories of “Best Newscast,” “Best Weathercast,” “Best Sportcast,” as well as top honors in the category of “News Special or Documentary.”

This was the third year in a row that Jesse Walker won “Best Weathercast.” The NBC 2 News team was honored for the second time in the last three years for “Best Newscast,” and Jason Pensky and the Sports team were honored for the first time for their work on “Goin’ to the Zone.” Former anchor Patrick Fazio and photo-journalist Bob Bruce were recognized for their work traveling to Auschwitz with Holocaust survivor Eva Kor and presenting the series “Forgive but Never Forget,” which will be rebroadcast at 4:30 p.m. on Thanksgiving Day and again at 11:30 a.m. on Nov. 29.

The Spectrum Awards were presented on Nov. 9 in Indianapolis.


The Indiana Department of Homeland Security honored counties across the state at the annual Emergency Management Alliance of Indiana Conference in Indianapolis.

Each county was scored in an Emergency Management Agency assessment. County EMAs were scored on their preparedness and response capabilities, plan development, partnerships with other counties and several other criteria. The scores then determined the top county and the most improved county emergency management programs in each of the state’s 10 districts.  

All counties were scored using the same criteria. Each district had a top county and a most improved county.

Parke County with director Amy Hensley was named a top county and Greene County with director Roger Axe was named a most improved county.
