RICHMOND, Va. -- WTVR CBS 6 was honored with the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA) medium market Station of the Year award for journalism produced in 2023.

It was the tenth year in a row that WTVR was named station of the year or runner-up in that category.

"To receive this award, we submitted a reel of our work throughout the year, and it must include 50% of the photography staff," WTVR chief photographer Curtis Akers said. "This is a great team accomplishment going against the best in the country in small and medium-sized markets."

Former chief photographer Brad Wilson won Third Place in the News Feature – Hard – Video Photojournalist category for "Sam’s Purpose," a story he and CBS 6 anchor GeNienne Samuels produced.
