            More than 2,700 entries were received from 122 news organizations this year. Entries were made into 54 regular categories and eleven specialty categories across seven circulation and four broadcast divisions.

            Town and Country newspaper took first and second place, respectively, in the Breaking News Category for their storm-related coverage last summer.

            Bob Esposito, Bradley Schlegel and Steve Pestrock garnered first place for their coverage of the torrential rains that flooded the region last July.  Esposito and Schlegel were joined by Editor Larry Roeder, taking second place, for their coverage of the violent storms that wreaked havoc in the region in June of 2019.

            Roeder also took second place in Editorial Writing and Esposito took second place in the Breaking News Photo category.

            "We are always proud when we can have the Upper Perkiomen Valley represented in a positive way throughout the state," Roeder said.  "The staff at the Town and Country is dedicated to the community beyond belief."

            According to the Pennsylvania Media Association, the Keystone Media Awards reinforce excellence by individuals in the news media profession, by recognizing journalism that consistently provides relevance, integrity and initiative in serving readers and audiences, and faithfully fulfills its First Amendment rights/responsibilities.

            Further, the Keystone Media Awards stimulate journalists to improve their craft and ultimately improve their community.
