ORLANDO, Fla. (WTXL) — WTXL-TV ABC 27 was recognized for its work in 2022 during the Florida Association of Broadcast Journalists awards ceremony Saturday at the Rosen Center Resort.

Along with anchoring and reporting duties, Frampton is the ABC 27’s Managing Editor.

The WTXL ABC 27 News team won an award for its continuing coverage of the Florida A&M University Compliance Challenges that surfaced days before the start of FAMU's 2022 college football season.
