The Texas AP Broadcasters have named KTEN News at 10 Winner of the 2005 Best Weathercast Award for TAPB TV Division 3. Winners were announced in early March, by the Texas Associated Press Broadcasters.

"Congratulations again to chief meteorologist Alan Mitchell for his Texas AP weathercast win," says KTEN news director Steve Korioth. "This is Alan's second win for 2005 weathercasts. He's already been singled out for excellence by the Oklahoma Association of Broadcasters."

Mitchell has been anchoring KTEN Sky Alert Weather for more than ten years.

The TAPB also singled out KTEN News at 6 for Best Newscasts honors. KTEN's newscasts finished second behind KCBD-TV in Lubbock, Texas.

The Texas AP Broadcasters split television stations into three divisions. Divison 3 includes TV stations in  Amarillo, Corpus Christi, Beaumont-Port Arthur, Wichita Falls, Odessa-Midland, Lubbock, Abilene, Denison-Sherman, San Angelo, Laredo, and Victoria, Texas.

The TAPB sponsors the competition to encourage the highest standards of reporting, programming, and promotion. All entries must have been broadcast in 2005, except for newscast and sportscast entries in which the TAPB restricted to a specific date.

Awards will be presented at the Texas AP Broadcasters Convention and Awards Banquet. This year it is being held at the Gaylord Texan Resort in Grapevine, Texas on Saturday, April 8th.
