Nickelodeon's "Nick News with Linda Ellerbee" was announced as the first kids' show to win an Edward R. Murrow award for "Best Network News Documentary."

The documentary special was called "Coming Home: When Parents Return from War" and gave viewers the chance to see the lives of children whose parents are dealing with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), physical wounds and some who don't ever return from war.

"We are proud that Nick News has received this top honor that recognizes journalistic excellence," said Cyma Zarghami, President, Nickelodeon/MTVN Kids and Family Group in a press release. "Nick News and Linda Ellerbee's commitment over the years has provided kids with educational and relevant stories that allow them to speak their minds on important issues."

The award is given by the Radio-Television News Directors Association and will be presented at the RTNDA Awards Dinner in New York on October 12, 2009.
