During Saturday night's Midsouth Regional Emmy Awards, the WAAY 31 I-TEAM was honored for its coverage of the Jimmy Spencer investigation and the Alabama Board of Pardons and Paroles (ABPP).

I-TEAM Reporter Breken Terry and Executive Producer Regan Spencer received the awards for the piece, "Voices for Victims," which was part of more than a year's worth of reporting and investigations.

The award came in the category of "Community Service," which was described during the show as an award that "is given to a station project that impacts an issue of public importance."

A big change came in June 2019 when Governor Kay Ivey signed House Bill 380 into law, which brought about reforms to the ABPP.
