The category was Radio Special Programming. As a NMPW first-place winner, Cooper’s story will go on to compete at the National Federation of Press Women later this year.

Cooper also snagged a second place award in the radio interview category for her report on a Santa Fe dentist who spearheaded a relief drive for Ukraine.
