The UNITY Awards honor diversity in broadcasting.

Alongside its annual Edward R. Murrow Awards, the Radio and Television Digital News Association also presents an annual prize for diversity in newsrooms, represented either by a diverse staff or by coverage of diversity. This award is presented in collaboration with UNITY Journalists, an organization devoted to improving diversity in newsrooms. In 2012, all three RTDNA/UNITY Award winners on the radio side were in public radio: WNYC’s Studio 360, Vermont Public Radio and WFDD in Winston-Salem, N.C. The deadline for RTDNA/UNITY Award entries, as for the Edward R. Murrow Awards, is Feb. 8, 2013.
