An exciting weekend for the WKRG Staff. The Alabama Broadcasters Association named News 5 “Television Station of the Year” in Alabama. The judges selected WKRG over all other television stations in the entire state. From flooding, severe weather, the Dauphin Island Regatta tragedy, and many other news stories in 2015, WKRG’s staff committed themselves to informing viewers of the news happening all across the Gulf Coast.
