    Contestant Name: WJRT-TV
    Entry Title: Lack of Diversity in Hockey
    Entry Credit: Brandon Green
    Judge Comment: Very nice. Good enterprise on a topic that rose above the usual "highlights and post-game" sports coverage. Thorough reporting. Evocative interviews. Obviously a labor of love; it paid off!
  • Place Name: Second Place
    Contestant Name: WDIV-TV
    Entry Title: A Home Opener Like No Other
    Judge Comment: Nice job demonstrating COVID's effects on Opening Day. Anchor's "at home" studio looked great! Reporters understood the assignment: show how COVID changed Opening Day. Nice work and good job by anchors/reporters in dealing with their own out of the ordinary circumstances.
