TORONTO, June 18 /CNW/ - Global Ontario was honoured today as a recipient
of the 2007 National Edward R. Murrow Award for Best Continuing Coverage in a
large market from the U.S. Radio-Television News Directors Association

in Toronto were prepared to guard themselves against a terrorist attack.

Washington, D.C. and the awards will be presented at the RTNDA Awards Dinner
on October 15, 2007 in New York.
