The Golden Mike Awards®

The Golden Mike Awards® is one of America's longest running broadcast news award programs. The Golden Mike Awards® is Southern California's most prestigious, and most coveted, broadcast journalism prize.

What sets the Golden Mikes apart from other competitions is the "Golden Mike Standard of Excellence". Unlike most awards contests in which winners are determined by selecting which entry is the "best" among all those submitted in each category, winners of the Golden Mike Awards®"  must also meet the "Standard of Excellence".

The RTNA also bestows Lifetime Achievement Awards and honors Broadcast Legends.

State of Media Relations in LA

For the first time in the history of the RTNA a survey was sent to reporters, videographers, editors and managers to assess the relationship between the LA Press Corps and the Los Angeles Police and Sheriff's Departments. The results were very interesting and have been used to lobby for change within both agencies.
