Walter Cronkite may be most closely tied to CBS, but that doesn't mean his name can't be associated with great journalism from other networks.

KARE, the Twin Cities' NBC affiliate, was named a winner of a Walter Cronkite Award for Excellence in Television Politcal Journalism. The station was honored for its coverage of the marriage equality debate, a project that also include members of Minnesota Public Radio.

"KARE's strength is in its storytelling," the judges said in their report. "Coverage was fair, balanced and deeply personal."

Other winners include ABC's Martha Raddatz for her work moderating the vice-presidential debate and ABC's Jonathan Karl for his analysis during the primaries.
