Out of 13 awards given for broadcast excellence in the country's largest TV markets, Seattle stations won three. KOMO won for Eric Johnson's feature reporting on Marin Morrison, a partially paralyzed teen swimmer with a brain tumor; KOMO also won for John Sharify's writing (and storytelling) and  KING (which got the overall excellence nod in 2006) won for best Website, king5.com. In big-market radio competition, KIRO AM won for best use of sound.
