Two of public radio’s youth media training units received 2010 Robert F. Kennedy Journalism Awards for radio reporting. Youth Radio won in the international category with Rachel Krantz’s investigation of hidden abuses of homosexuals in the military. Her story aired on NPR’s All Things Considered. WNYC’s Radio Rookies earned top recognition for domestic reporting with “This is the South Bronx,” first-person narratives of teens living in poverty, by Miguelina Diaz, Keith Tingman and Amon Frazier.
