We are truly honored to have received the Texas Associated Press Broadcasters award for Overall Station Excellence among all divisions in the state.
KBTX received a total of 27 honors at the TAPB award ceremony in Austin, the most in Texas. Twenty-four of them had been previously announced.
Saturday night, TAPB announced News 3 had won Best Overall Newscast in Division 3, along with also earning second place in the category.
The station excellence award was the final honor given that night, and goes to just one station each year in Texas.
The Headliners Club, which gives additional awards in conjunction with the TAPB, gave News 3 an award for coverage of Johnny Manziel’s Road to the Heisman Trophy
