Young gets second nomination.

Rick Young, PBS FRONTLINE and Investigative Reporting Workshop producer, was nominated for a 2012 Writers Guild award today for Flying Cheaper, which aired earlier this year.

The program was a follow-up to last year’s Flying Cheap, a one-hour co-production of the Workshop and FRONTLINE, for which Young received a 2011 Writers’ Guild award in the documentary category.

In Flying Cheaper, we examined the growth of contract maintenance in the airline industry, as carriers outsource more of their work.

The Writers Guild of America, West and the Writers Guild of America, East both announced the nominations for outstanding achievement in television, news, radio, promotional writing and graphic animation during the 2011 season. The winners will be honored at the 2012 Writers Guild Awards on Feb. 19, 2012, at ceremonies in Los Angeles and New York.
