Morning Journal, sister paper tie for best in Ohio

Accepting the awards. That's me and Laura Kessel, managing editor of The News-Herald, whom I hired as a Morning Journal copy editor at the start of her journalism career. Then there's Ed Byers, Press Club president, and WKYC-TV news anchor Dick Russ who was the emcee for the awards ceremony.  (Photo courtesy of The Press Club  of Cleveland)

 Lots of hard work by lots of hard-working news folks made possible the following short story written today ... and I just wanted to share the good news here:

CLEVELAND - The Morning Journal tied for first place as best daily newspaper in Ohio of 100,000 or less circulation with its sister newspaper, The News-Herald in Lake County on Friday.

The award came in The Cleveland Press Club Ohio Excellence in Journalism competition. Awards were announced Friday evening in ceremonies at the Marriott Hotel in Downtown Cleveland.

The Morning Journal also won second place for Best Web Site in Ohio as well as taking second place for Best Breaking News-Ongoing Story for "Officer Kerstetter Killed."

Sports Editor Colin Wilson won second place in Sports issue coverage for stories on Elyria Catholic High School's violation of Ohio High School Athletic Association rules.

The Press Club competition drew 800 entries from newspapers, magazines, TV and radio stations statewide.


Now, it's back to work for us ... every day is a fresh start. News to find, pages to fill.
