The series is presented by David Marr and Melissa Davey and produced by Miles Martignoni. The Reckoning examines how the royal commission came to investigate decades of child abuse, hidden by the Catholic church and other institutions.
Guardian Australia editor Lenore Taylor said: “Congratulations to the team behind The Reckoning – David Marr, Melissa Davey and Miles Martignoni. It is excellent to be nominated and win against some of the world’s leading radio producers.”
