For the past year, StateImpactPennsylvania has been a one-stop media shop for information on the state’s recent boom in natural gas hydraulic fracturing, or fracking. Divided between NPR, WHYY, and Harrisburg’s WITF, the series was one of fourteen projects to win a prestigious duPont-Columbia award for excellence in broadcast and digital journalism. “Their work revealed previously unreported aspects of a new gas drilling law, including a provision that would require health professionals to sign confidentiality agreements in order to get access to chemical exposure information and developments in the state’s efforts to establish a natural gas impact fee,” read the announcement.
