“This isn’t just a win for the show, it is a win for the entire Japanese
American community,” MacIntyre said. David Ono believes that the stories
are so rich that they write themselves, “I’m deeply honored to have the
opportunity to keep these important stories alive. Over 70 years later, they
are still so relevant.”

(RTDNA) Edward R. Murrow Award and the RTDNA’s National Unity Award, which
honors outstanding achievements in the coverage of cultural diversity in
the communities they serve.
