Karin Wins Texas Media Award

Karin was not available to anchor the news on Thursday night, because she was in Austin attending the 22nd annual Media Award Banquet of the Texas Chapter of the American Cancer Society.

Every year the ACS names the best journalists in Texas for their work in medical reporting in broadcast and in print. Karin was among the winners for her report called "Kaitlyn's Story". Holding Kaitlyn's hand, she accepted the award with Kaitlyn and her mom, Lynetta, there as well.

The two part story described Lynetta's fight against breast cancer, partly through Kaitlyn's perspective. It was an emotional presentation as Lynetta took the stage and thanked Karin for the story, and thanked Lubbock for its support in raising the money to send her family to New York this summer for a vacation that was nearly cancelled due to cancer costs.

So now, NewsChannel 11 congratulates Karin as a Texas Media Award Winner, and by the way, she says she is giving the award to Kaitlyn because it was "Kaitlyn's Story".
