AUSTIN (KXAN) — KXAN News beat out other stations in Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio to win the Station Photojournalism category in the inaugural Texas Broadcast News Awards.

KXAN’s Eric Henrikson compiled 2021’s best shots from our station’s photojournalists and multimedia journalists in an entry spanning a little over 10 minutes, which can be viewed in the video player above.

The compilation features coverage on severe weather, the Sixth Street mass shooting, Austin’s homelessness response and the February 2021 winter storm.

Station Photojournalism isn’t the only category KXAN won. Reporter Tahera Rahman was recognized in the Multimedia Journalist category as well as Chief Meteorologist David Yeomans in the Specialty or Beat Reporting category.
