For broadcasters, it’s disturbing to note how few radio or TV news outlets are represented on the list.  Just five of the entries included below were created in broadcast newsrooms, and just one of those at the local level (WRAL-TV).  What’s wrong here when there are no TV news operations nominated in the online video presentation category?

Still, it’s worth browsing all the entries to see some of the best in multimedia storytelling.
