NewsChannel 5's investigation of Bill Heard Chevrolet has been recognized with a National Headliner Award for business and consumer reporting.

The "NewsChannel 5 Investigates" team beat out local television stations across the country to take first place in the category.

Consumer investigator Jennifer Kraus, photojournalist Bryan Staples and producer Kevin Wisniewski documented questionable sales and financing practices inside the company that bills itself as the World's Largest Chevy Dealer.

Those reports resulted in a state investigation of Bill Heard Chevrolet, which is continuing.

It is the second first-place finish for the "NewsChannel 5 Investigates" team in the National Headliner Awards.

In 2003, chief investigative reporter Phil Williams and Staples received the National Headliner Award for investigative reporting for their investigation of state contracts awarded to friends of former Tennessee Gov. Don Sundquist.

The Press Club of Atlantic City established the National Headliner Awards in 1934. It is one of the nation's oldest and largest annual contests recognizing outstanding journalistic achievement.
