DALLAS, Sep. 28—KERA has won a national journalism award for The Broken Hip, a series about hip fractures. The KERA News staff won a 2015 Online Journalism Award from the Online News Association in Los Angeles Saturday night. The Broken Hip won in the Topical Reporting category.
The Broken Hip includes radio reports, videos and graphics. An interactive graphic shows how to make a bedroom fall-proof, highlighting various parts of the room, from lighting to chairs to closets. Videos feature several people profiled in the series as they share their experiences in their own words. Graphics show the evolution of hip replacement – from ivory and plaster of Paris in the 1890s to today’s hip resurfacing.
