KFBK’s Sam Shane wins Murrow Award for best podcast

Sacramento — News 93.1 KFBK announces that top on-air personality and Davis resident Sam Shane’s podcast, “The New Angle: Jim Jones and The People’s Temple,” has received a Large Market Radio Television Digital News Association Murrow Award for best podcast.

365体育投注The Murrow Awards recognize local and national news stories that uphold the RTDNA code of ethics, demonstrate technical expertise and exemplify the importance and impact of journalism as a service to the community.

As detailed in the podcast, Reuben tried to warn top city officials with allegations against Jones, including theft, sexual misconduct and even murder, and he still wonders to this day if the Jonestown massacre could have been avoided.

“A good podcast doesn’t just inform, it takes you along an emotional ride,” said Curtiss Johnson, vice president of programming for iHeartMedia Sacramento. “It makes you feel and think many times, long after you’ve finished listening. Sam Shane certainly did that with his provocative ‘The New Angle: Jim Jones and the People’s Temple.’”

365体育投注“The story of Jim Jones and The People’s Temple has been told many times, but never how David Reuben told it to me,” Shane said. “He described in riveting detail how top political leaders in San Francisco and California ignored warnings about Jim Jones. This podcast wouldn’t have been possible had it not been for Reuben’s courage and honesty in telling this sad yet remarkable tale. Editor Zac Foster and I are honored and thankful to win this award.”
