Golden Mike winners

KNBC Channel 4 leads the TV stations with six Golden Mikes from the Radio Television News Association, including best newscast writing, documentary ("On the Verge") and investigative story (for its Staples Center investigation.) In addition, KNBC is a finalist for all three categories of best newscast — 60 minutes, 30 minutes or less and daytime — to be announced at the RTNA banquet in January. On the radio side, KPCC-FM and plucky little KCLU tied with six awards. KFI's noon news won for best writing, and KFWB won for its coverage of fires in Malibu. Among KCRW's four Golden Mikes was a personal surprise, the "best original news commentary, analysis, station editorial or series of editorials" for my LA Observed commentary back in June on City Attorney Rocky Delgadillo. It seems the station entered it. The RTNA gives out a lot of Golden Mikes each year — here's the full list of winners.
