OCEAN CITY, Md. (AP) - The Chesapeake Associated Press Broadcasters Association is recognizing WBAL-AM in Baltimore and WRC-TV in Washington as “best in show” winners in its annual editorial contest.

WBAL-AM wins for its “Baltimore Unrest” coverage of the aftermath of the death of Freddie Gray, who was fatally injured last year in police custody. WRC’s winning story is “Serving in Silence: Rape in the National Guard.”

The association is presenting the awards Saturday at its convention in Ocean City.

Twenty organizations submitted 243 entries for the region, which covers Delaware, the District of Columbia, Maryland and northern Virginia.

Kelsey Groom of Morgan State University in Baltimore wins the $3,000 Bob Shilling Memorial Scholarship. Shilling, who died this year, was a Baltimore radio and television news broadcaster who served for decades in the association’s leadership.
