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.

Rogers says the decision is in response to declining print revenue, adding that advertisers are moving increasingly to digital platforms.
