Norfolk, VA - WVEC's Scott Cash was selected as Best Sports Anchor for his work during the past year and David Alan received Meritorious Honors in the Douglas Southall Freeman Award for Public Service. Both were honored along with other winners at the Virginia Associated Press Broadcasters Awards ceremony held on April, 17, 2010.
Scott Cash, a 24 year veteran at WVEC, has covered everything from local high school sports to the Super Bowl, including the Daytona 500; Virginia Tech's run for the national championship; and area teams' title quests in the NCAA Basketball Tournament.
In the 10 years David Alan has spent at WVEC, he has been recognized by the AP for his investigative work and is a previous winner of the Douglas Southall Award. This year's recognition was for a "You Paid For It" investigation into lights left on all night in a city-owned building in downtown Norfolk that houses the Norfolk City Public Schools Administration offices, the Commonwealth's Attorney's office, and the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.
