Saturday night, the Childhood and Family Learning Foundation honored WGNO's Curt Sprang as one of the area's Outstanding Men in Broadcast Media.

It's a big honor for Curt who has been with WGNO New since the station's first newscast as an ABC affiliate in 1996.

The event Saturday night was part of a fundraiser for the group.  In all, six men from television stations in New Orleans received the award.

The highlight of the evening was a performance by Ellis Marsalis and Irvin Mayfield.

Curt says he feels so grateful for the group's recognition.  He sent out a "thank you" at the conclusion of Monday night's 10:00 pm newscast.  Click on the video button above to see it!
