The Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters has announced that Kara Coleman of Erie News Now will be honored with an award.

The Pennsylvania Association of Broadcasters award for Outstanding Television Feature will be awarded to Kara for her special report titled “Giving the Gift of Life” which aired last November.  The story profiled an Erie father and his adopted daughter.  The man needed a kidney transplant and despite not being blood relation, she was a match for him and donated her kidney.

Erie News Now and Kara followed them through the surgery and recovery and demonstrated an incredible bond throughout the process. You can watch the story here.

The PAB awards competition recognizes and encourages excellence in broadcasting annually among stations throughout Pennsylvania.

Kara co-anchors the weekday morning news on WICU and WSEE in Erie.
