Missourinet News Director Bob Priddy has distinguished himself over the years as an award-winning journalist and state historian. He is known statewide for his daily broadcasts on the Missourinet and his historical vignettes, Across Our Wide Missouri, which also have been published in book form.
What many Missourians don’t know is how well respected Bob is nationally in our industry. Bob has served in a number of capacities with the Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) as well as with the foundation associated with it.
Bob was honored with two awards at the opening reception of the RTDNA@NAB 2010 convention in Las Vegas. RTDNA officials have recognized Bob’s 27 years of service to the board with the John Hogan Award, named for the founder of the association. RTDNA has also announced the creation of a new award, the Bob Priddy Award, which will be awarded to board members who exemplify distinguished and consistent service to RTDNA.
Everyone at The Missourinet and Learfield Communications is very proud of Bob and offer sincere congratulations to a distinguished colleague.
