FOX 8 News has been honored by the prestigious National Headliner Awards. It is unusual for a station to win more than one Headliner in a year; and this year, FOX 8 received three first-place awards.

One of those awards is for our I-Team series "Heroin Hits Home." It focused on searching for answers to a heroin epidemic that now kills more people in Ohio than car accidents.

The award is shared by Bill Sheil, Mary Stiene, and photojournalist Jim Pijor.
