2 0

Members of the Newstalk 1010 newsroom have picked up four awards from the Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA), honouring the best in broadcast journalism.

Morning news anchor and commentator Dave Agar was honoured with a lifetime achievement award.

Agar also picked up the Sam Ross Award for Editorial/Commentary for "Living with an Addict". The morning after Toronto mayor Rob Ford admitted to having smoked crack, Agar shared the heartbreak, fear and hurt of growing up with a dad he described as "a horrible drunk".

Rob Ford was the inspiration for another RTDNA-winning piece by reporter Russ Courtney. The journey through Ford's time as mayor on the third anniversary of his election is the winner of the Dave Rogers Award for a long feature.

Reporter James Moore is the winner of the Dave Rogers Award for a short feature, for encapsulating a public memorial to Toronto Police Constable John Zivcic. The 34-year-old "gentle giant" was fatally hurt when his cruiser collided with another car as he responded to a call about a suspected drunk driver.

    To Dave Agar:

    BRAVO and Congratulations for all of your truly deserved awards... I love listening to you on 1010... I appreciate your candor and no nonsense approach to reporting.

    I was listening the day you opened up about living with your alcoholic Father. You see, I lived just next door on Twidale... the Armstrong Family. Our family was also touched by alcoholism. I also remember your German Sheppard dog... was his name Cesar?

    All the best,
    Patricia

    ps you were younger than I... I was more ages with Sherry Heeney!
