Todd Hatton, WKMS local host for NPR's "Morning Edition," and Chad Lampe, news director and assistant station manager, received the award for best radio documentary in 2013 at the National Press Club banquet for their documentary "Kentucky Dam - Power for the People."

A second place award in the Documentary category for small newsrooms in PRNDI competition was awarded to "West Kentucky Coal: People Places and Power."
