News 8 Now honored by Wisconsin Broadcasters Association

News 8 Now is honored to be awarded Best News Operation of the Year (Small Market) from the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association.

It was one of several awards earned by our dedicated journalists for our work in 2020. Like so many front line workers, the WKBT team found a way to pull together and rise to the challenges that came with working during a pandemic.

“Local news coverage was a lifeline for many people as we came together to keep each other safe in unprecedented times,” said News Director Anne Paape. “The News 8 Now team always finds a way to rise to a challenge and stay focused on telling the stories of what’s happening in our communities.”

Our station also earned a number of other awards including:
