September 25- Huntington, W. Va. – A student broadcaster from WMUL-FM, Marshall University's public radio station, was twice named a national finalist in the 2011 Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) National Mark of Excellence Contest in the categories of radio sports reporting and radio in-depth reporting respectively. The awards were presented at the SPJ Convention and National Journalism Conference Saturday, September 22, 2012, at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.
Dr. Chuck G. Bailey, professor of Radio-Television Production and Management in the W.

"Our radio students have established a tradition at WMUL-FM of being able to successfully compete at the national level with other student journalists. WMUL-FM Station Manager Leannda Carey twice received recognition in the SPJ's National Mark of Excellence Contest for her work and that is no small accomplishment,” Dr. Bailey said. “These national finalist awards are further evidence of the quality of the work performed by our talented broadcasting students at WMUL-FM and the W.
