We at Midweek are delighted and proud to announce that Meaghan Brackenbury, a member of our team for the Fall 2019 season, has just been awarded two — count ’em: TWO — prestigious scholarships by the Radio Television Digital News Foundation, an arm of the Radio Television Digital News Association (RTDNA) of Canada.

Meaghan won for a short documentary on homelessness in Ottawa that ran on Midweek on October 2, 2019.

Meaghan won both the JJ Richards Scholarship for audio documentary and the RTNDA George Clark Scholarship for the best work overall among this year’s RTDNF student award winners.

You can listen to Meaghan’s excellent doc by cuing in to the 12:47 point in this show — or listen to the whole show, because it’s all good stuff, and coincidentally, Meaghan Brackenbury was one of the hosts that week.


This isn’t the first time Midweek documentaries have won recognition from the RTDNF — here were two earlier winners.

Congratulations to Meaghan from the entire Midweek family! Well deserved recognition!
