Chicago, IL - June 24, 2015 - Rivet Radio, the smart audio platform, is pleased to announce reporter and producer George Drake Jr. has won a national Edward R. Murrow Award.

His production skills have made story after story shine on Rivet", Vice President for News Charlie Meyerson said. "It's gratifying to see the RTDNA recognize his talent, giving Rivet another award for our growing collection."
