We are thrilled to announce that, for the second year in a row, State of the Re:Union has been honored with an Edward R. Murrow Award. Our episode, The Hospital Always Wins, was awarded Best News Documentary by the Radio Television Digital News Association.
The Hospital Always Wins is a story a decade in the making. Back in 2004, producer Laura Starecheski visited a state mental hospital in Queens, New York, called Creedmoor. She met a patient there named Issa Ibrahim, an artist stuck in the catch-22 of a lifetime.
