CBC’s Keating wins Webster

Nelson-based CBC reporter Bob Keating was awarded a Webster award for Best Radio Reporting

CBC reporter Bob Keating of Nelson holds his Webster award for Best Radio Reporting.

Nelson-based CBC reporter Bob Keating was honoured with a Webster award for Best Radio Reporting at a ceremony in Vancouver on Thursday night.

Keating earned the award for a series of broadcasts called Finding Kienan, about the three-year-old Kienan Hebert who was abducted from his home in Sparwood last year.

Keating spoke with the Star in September about the story, after learning he was a finalist for the award. In that interview he said covering the Hebert abduction was, “one of the most compelling stories of my career without question.”

This is Keating’s second Webster in as many years. Last year he won for a story on a Michael Arrack, who was banished from Nelson for criminal harassment.
