Nancy Shute, a freelance science writer and immediate past president of the National Association of Science Writers, said the piece showed "terrific field reporting, lyrical writing, and compassion for the struggles of scientists in the face of the unknown." Nijhuis, a previous winner in 2006 in the small newspaper category, noted that bats are "about as far from 'charismatic megafauna' as you can get." The challenge of the story, she said, was to demystify the creatures and make their "very real plight interesting and appealing" to a general audience.

9 November 2011

Much of the Hetch Hetchy water delivery system for the San Francisco Bay Area was built in the 1920s and 1930s with riveted steel pipes that don't perform well during earthquakes. At a cost of $4.6 billion, the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission has been installing new pipes and employing state-of-the-art engineering elements. In a solid mix of historical footage and on-the-scene reporting, with an appreciation for the challenges involved, KQED's Sheraz Sadiq explained the engineering steps being undertaken to protect the Bay Area's water supply. Guy Gugliotta, a freelance science writer who helped judge the contest, called the KQED broadcast "a comprehensive look at the vulnerability of the water supply in the San Francisco Bay Area something that should concern every resident." He praised t
