Back in September 2016, WZZM aired a special, taking viewers inside Muskegon Heights and their efforts to rebuild the city.

Last night, "New Heights: Restoring a City" was honored with a special award.

The special won "Best Documentary" at the Eclipse Awards on Thursday, May 18, in Grand Rapids.

We want to give a congratulations to all of our coworkers who worked on the project, as well as Meredith Terhaar's husband, filmmaker/producer, Eric Schrotenboer.

The Eclipse Award is given for story telling and production excellence in the production community.
