The series aired in June 2009 and won a 2010 Edward R. Murrow Regional Award for Best Use of Sound.
In 2009, North Carolina legislators voted to ban smoking in nearly all restaurants and bars. Private clubs and cigar bars were exempt from the restriction. For WCHL News (97.9 FM) in Chapel Hill, I directed and produced a five-part feature series that explored how the owners, managers, and customers viewed the new law. I wrote, produced, and hosted the final installment: Thank you for not smoking at OCSC (Orange County Social Club).
