Missouri Valley College students recently received awards from the Missouri Broadcast Educators Association (MBEA). This organization is made up of mass communication departments from colleges and universities across the state of Missouri. Each year, students enter audio and video projects that are judged by industry professionals. 

Missouri Valley College received 6 awards this year. There were 29 categories with winners from 13 different schools.

MVC won the Multicamera Live Sports Event category for the “Valley-CMU Women’s soccer match” from the fall of 2020. Missouri Valley College has won a multi camera category in the contest six of the last seven years. 

MVC also won five awards for audio. Anna Babiak won first place for her audio news story “Charlie Guthrie is Marshall and MVC.” This is her fourth MBEA award.

Austin Bohlen won the Documentary/Public Affairs audio category for his interview with lacrosse coach J.D. Lemay. He also placed second in the Audio Promo category with his “Artificial Intelligence-KMVC” promo. 

Christal Adams placed second in the Audio Commercial Category with her “Enroll at Valley” commercial.

Cody Hohenberger won the Audio Liner Category with his “91.7 the V” liner for KMVC radio.

“Missouri Valley’s live sports coverage continues to be among the best in the state and in the nation,” said Chaz Maddi, KMVC-TV manager and instructor of broadcast. “The live game coverage is one of MVC’s most visible endeavors. Valley coaches are vocal and excited about the broadcasts. Parents enjoy watching the games live. Players enjoy watching the games on demand. Even coaches on opposing teams tell us they enjoy watching Valley’s Viking Sports Network broadcasts. It’s a lot of work, but the students do it well.”
