Walter Brasch, senior editor for OEN and whose column appears weekly, recently won awards for both his column and his radio commentary.

Brasch won first place in commentary (general) and second place in commentary (humor) from the Pennsylvania Press Club, against statewide competition. During the past decade, he has also won multiple awards from the National Society of Newspaper Columnists, National Federation of Press Women, Society of Professional Journalists, Pennsylvania Press Club, and the Pennsylvania Women's Press Association.

At the annual Pennsylvania Press Conference, held in State College, Pa., this past weekend, he won his second consecutive first place for commentary, presented by the Pennsylvania Associated Press Broadcasters Association.

Dr. Brasch has been a journalist more than 40 years, specializing in social issues and investigative/public affairs reporting. He is also a multimedia writer-producer and the author of 20 books. His latest book is the critically-acclaimed Fracking Pennsylvania, an in-depth look at the economic, health, and environmental effects of fracking, as well as the ties between politicians and the oil/gas industry throughout the country.
