‘Let There Be Light’ honored by broadcasters

For the second straight year, Michigan Radio has won top honors among broadcasters from the Michigan Association of Broadcasters for Documentary Production.

“Let There Be Light,” produced by reporter John Walters, received a best-in-category prize.

The documentary, broadcast Dec. 24, 1993, was inspired by the fact that several of the world’s religions have holidays that celebrate light around the winter solstice, the darkest time of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. The one-hour program explored the concept of light in various religious traditions, and featured music of many cultures.

Walters is Michigan Radio’s local anchor for the National Public Radio newsmagazine Morning Edition, heard each weekday 6–8 a.m.
