KCRW won two regional Edward R. Murrow awards today, one for a series on the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, and a second for a piece on the casting call for “Straight Outta Compton,” an upcoming film about the founding of NWA.

You can hear the Straight Outta Compton story and see photos, here. 

And you can listen to Cargoland, which tells the stories of life at the ports of L.A. and Long Beach, here.

Regional winners move on to the national competition. Those awards will be announced in June.
