LPB’s Attakapas: The Cajun Story recently received the Louisiana Association of Broadcasters “Uniquely Louisiana” Award. The program, based on the stage show by Zachary Richard, combined music and narrative to tell the story of the Acadians and their journey to becoming Louisianans. The LAB awards are sponsored annually to recognize outstanding achievements by Louisiana radio and television broadcasters. This competition was established to encourage the highest standards of reporting, community service and production creativity.
