Clue Awards Honors Podcast Trio, Including One Show Selected By True Crime Fans.

CBC Podcasts, the series Black and Missing and A Date with Dateline were the podcast winners at last weekend’s Clue Awards, which were handed out at the 2024 CrimeCon in Nashville. The awards show, which aired live on the Law&Crime Network for the first time, honored the best in true crime content — including podcasting.

The winner of the Outstanding Episodic Podcast Series was Untold Stories: Black and Missing, the show produced by Black and Missing Enterprises. Launched a year ago, the true-crime podcast series was created to shine a light on the cases of missing people of color that are often overlooked due to the lack of media coverage and law enforcement support.

The winner of the Outstanding Podcast Docuseries price was Someone Knows Something, produced by CBC Podcasts. Its most recent season told the story of Angel Carlick, who was murdered in the Canadian north just days before she was set to graduate in 2007, at age 18. Investigator David Ridgen delved into the cold case, working alongside Angel’s family, friends, and community, to uncover details surrounding her death in a search for justice.

Podcasting’s popularity also was on display during the show as Clue’s 2024 “People’s Choice Awards: Creator of the Year” honor went to Kimberly Arnold and Katie Mitchell, co-hosts of the A Date with Dateline podcast that recaps episodes of “Dateline NBC.”

“Wow we’re in shock. We obviously couldn’t do this without ‘Dateline NBC’ or being the show that we loved so much that we started a podcast about it, and for supporting us for the past seven years,” they wrote in a Facebook post.

Among the other winners during the Clue Awards were Netflix, Hulu, NBC, and Hachette Books. Clue’s 2024 “Crimefighter of the Year” recipient, John Walsh, accepted the special honor from last year’s recipient, The Gabby Petito Foundation. Walsh, the iconic host and creator of Fox TV’s “America’s Most Wanted,” is celebrating the 40-year anniversary of his non-profit organization, The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

Clue Award winners were determined by CrimeCon’s selection committee, comprised of a wide range of producers, network and streaming executives, and other creatives and industry leaders, representing all sectors of the true crime genre. This year’s judges include executives from NBCUniversal, Wondery, Simon & Schuster, Campfire Studios, Tenderfoot TV and the National Center for Victims of Crime.

Also at CrimeCon 2024, CBS News correspondent Erin Moriarty announced onstage that her original podcast, My Life of Crime, will be returning this Fall for a sixth season. The exact case to be covered in the new season will be revealed closer to the premiere date. The series is produced by Paramount Audio in association with “48 Hours” and CBS News. 

SiriusXM has set a deal with CrimeCon to air recordings of key sessions from the 2024 event in Nashville. SiriusXM’s “Triumph” channel will air 16 of the event’s key sessions on June 8-9.
